I love this collection and it looks like everyone else does too: he won the LVMH Special Prize this year.
“Originally from Japan, born and raised in Tokyo, Kozaburo Akasaka travelled to London to study Fashion Design at Central Saint Martins College of Art where he obtained his undergraduate degree. He then gained professional experiences with prestigious designers in New York such as Thom Browne. Having grown up during the 90s in Japan, Kozaburo’s aesthetic is heavily inspired by music subcultures and various street styles he was exposed to during that period. Timeless design of classic men’s apparel is at the core of his aesthetic.”
