    I look forward to Suzuki Takayuki this season
    Takayuki Suzuki started the brand from A/W 02, and has been doing small-scale presentations besides designing costumes for films or musicians like Chara.
    I cannot imagine what the coming collection on the official calendar will be like.
    hope it will turn out good there too.

    http://suzukitakayuki.com/

    so he has his own website and you can see better info there.
    but some of the updated info that is not on the site.
    in 2008, he started a new line "108 (toha)". this is sort of an extra project where he does various things he cannot do within the limits of the regular collections.
    some collaborations, the reproduction of the past pieces, etc.
    another thing from the project is "ikkuna", a collection that specializes in organic cotton.
    http://ikkuna.jp/

    and from this fall, menswear is available.




    pieces from toha

    you are all welcome


    yes gius, pieces before his F/W 07 official calendar debut,
    as it is written on the poster image, it was a comprehensive exhibition held at fashion resource center in july, 2006.
    not just spring 2006.
    the costumes in the bottom left pic made of mud-dyed fabrics are his much earlier work.
    the stuff in the right pic are tea-dyed.
    the pieces in the poster also look like tea-dyed, I'm not sure though.
    our instructor in dyeing fabrics, softgrey, might tell something even from the image.

    btw, fashion resource center is part of bunka universe.

    yeah the materials look beautifully treated. personal and thoughtful. there's also other ways to dye too...onion skins...which i've tried on second shirts. it gives a lovely worn,faded affect without looking 'stained'.

    thanks again runner.. i hope i can track down pictures of the exhibitions and other works

    here's a tiny bit more info from tokyoartbeat.com


    i found this blog of a Japanese singer... i saw photos often of her with Takayuki, and also little pieces of his work. http://mani-f.com/mini-diary/

    perhaps we should start a general thread on this designer
    if i can find enough info to start a new one

    i have used mineral dyes to create these colours
    iron rust with caustic soda
    and some in combination with tannic acid.
    depending on which mixture you dip in first, you can get a yellowish colour or brown or grey-purple (there seems to be purple in the centre fabric, to the left)

    but i'm not entirely sure if it's eco-friendly, especially with the caustic soda... That seems to be takayuki's aim. usually we do research first, to see where we can dump the chemicals. at school we can dump it in the sink since there is a proper cleaning system

    though takayuki's choice of colour is nice , it's the fabric itself that i really like...

    also it might be coffee or orzo that can make those colors, as we saw in the last collection from linea.


    yes that's relevant, plant extract juice as dye and mud (or ash sometimes) for mordant,
    which oshimatsumugi and kihachijo are known for.

    gius, I understand "thread consistency".
    but maybe we don't have to delete what was written.
    because it was written for the question posted in the original thread, at least the deleted part should stay there, instead of being lost in vain.
    and if I were to edit someone's writings, I'd talk to the person about that previously.



    btw, the content in #1 was originally posted in "Tokyo F/W 07-08 Schedule" thread.

    sorry about that
    yeah i was duplicating some posts,
    then i realized your post i edited (deleted a part of) was not duplicated , i had just moved it
    --and i couldn't rewrite what you wrote to pucci_mamma

    i am sure your post to her was basically #11
    and you also mentioned cotton sheep in san fransisco (which i added in the stockist list here)


    will let you know if i think of doing it again ;-)
