Kimono Fusion




From the ultra traditional to the hyper modern
13th September 2009 to 24th January 2010

the museum of far eastern antiquities opens in autumn 2009 with a japanese fashion show that starts with the kimono and in a playful way springs into various japanese subcultures and fashion trends of today. East meets west, old meets new, real meets fake.

Street origami



Cosplay & No theatre.


New styles, made out of old kimonos.

The exhibition features exquisite vintage kimonos that puts dazzling textile techniques on display,
Mixed with creations by some of japan’s hottest young designers and artists – from takyua angel’s spectacular creatios to street-smart childish designs by shojono tomo. Handmade accessories for young geishas are shown side by side with the graffiti artist shin tanaka’s murals and hip hopish origami figures inspired by the elaborate patterns of ancient kimonos.

The exhibition is a joint arrangement with Rekostylisterna: Aia Jüdes and Sanna Gebeyehu.



Kunihiko Morinaga
born in 1980, Tokyo, Japan

The motto of young designer Kunihiro Morinaga is »God is in the details.« He and his team want to explore and enhance things that ordinarily do not catch our attention. There is tension when we observe ordinary things and discover their extraordinariness. Using this observation as a catalyst, his simple, urban clothes get an imaginative twist.

The name of Morinaga’s brand, »nrealage,« comes from a personal play on words and is made up of the words »real, unreal, and age.« His collections are conceptual and presented as installations and performances.

Morinaga plays with possibilities and extend the limits of our perception of ordinary clothes and their design.



born in 1975, in Aichi, Japan

With his latest collection, »Tangled«, Suzuki shows his designs in Sweden for the first time. One of Japan’s most exciting young fashion designers, he is well-known for his organic, experimental designs, and his clothes balance between fashion and art.

With subtle intuition, Suzuki combines extremely well tailored elements with tattered and threadbare one. Natural materials and needlework of the highest quality mix with loose threads, tears and sometimes stains.
By exploring and appraising things that lack value in the eyes of most people, he brings about an unexpected kind of beauty that teaches us to see clothes in a new light.


Una de esas cosas, que deben de ser obvias para la mayoría, pero no lo son para mí.

Por qué son los libros así? Pues porque a los chinos, los rollos de 60m les resultaban demasiado largos. Así que decidieron plegarlos, dejando las letras fuera.


Y si te dedicas a coser lo que queda en medio, qué consigues?
