Paris, France – In his second showing on the official haute couture calendar in Paris, the talented Japanese designer Yuima Nakazato plunges us deeper into a world in which that which was once not possible has become reality thanks to modern technologies and innovations. He is delving further and further in his quest to change the way clothing is conceived. He wants to make it personalized and only for the individual who wears it.
Modern technologies allow Yuima Nakazato to create a body of work in which each piece is realized without the aid of a single needle or thread. This is taking advantage of what is becoming more widely accepted techniques. In fact each piece in the collection is created with thousands of individual components that the couturier calls “Units”. The result is an extremely original collection of creative pieces that are bringers of light. This is the case because the materials are extremely friendly towards the light that it reflects.
The clientele for this kind of work is one that appreciates being different and for those who embrace individuality. Though a majority of the looks in this Spring/Summer 2017 appear to be for special occasions (such as for performing on a stage), there are several very wearable looks in the collection. Every piece can easily be worn. However one cannot but help to draw comparisons between the revolutionary ideas of Yuima Nakazato and the work of Paco Rabanne. This former grand couturier was a futuristic talent in his own day. Here we see the same in Nakazato.
