The Spring/Summer 2022 collection titled “PAUSE≒PLAY” is a direct reflection of Takahiro’s thoughts and emotions accumulated over the past 6 months, and expressed as if directly from his personal diary of elusive thoughts and emotions. Takahiro, famously known for expressing urgency to further evolve fashion and always look forward, chooses instead, in this collection, to PAUSE. And in doing so he has reevaluated the very reason why he designs.
