Japan Blue Jeans Explains Why Japanese Denim Has to Be Handmade

Image
Some of the best jeans in the world are crafted in Kojima, a seaside district of Kurashiki, Okayama province. Widely known as Japan’s “denim capital,” Kojima has long been the textile mecca of the country and is where jeans were first produced in Japan. Amongst the cluster of denim manufacturers in the area, Japan Blue has separated itself with loyal followers through its quality in production. “We spend most of our time developing and creating the material, because that’s the essential element to quality denim” says Hiroki Kishimoto, longtime designer and founder of Japan Blue Jeans.

Continuing the tradition of crafting durable and timeless denim, Kishimoto and his team undergo a meticulous process each season, from the special wash and dye treatments to the way the denim is hand cut and sewn. While denim originally hails from the States, Kojima denim has set itself apart from competitors in the market by portraying a unique beauty in their jeans that reflects Kojima’s culture. We…

TAKASHI MURAKAMI @Mori tower Roppongi - All The Pictures

Image
Murakami Takashi (b. 1962) is widely known for his character-based artworks associated with 'otaku culture,' but also for a broad range of activities beyond such works. He formulated the 'Superflat' art theory, organizes the GEISAI art events, supports young artists, collaborates with musicians and corporate brands, and produces films and animations.
Murakami is considered one of the most active and significant Japanese artists in the global art scene today. The planned exhibition at the Mori Art Museum is eagerly anticipated; while many large-scale exhibitions of Murakami's works have been held worldwide, including "©Murakami," which toured internationally starting with the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (2007), "Murakami Versailles," Palace of Versailles, France (2010) and "Murakami - Ego" in Qatar (2012), such showings in Japan have been extremely limited.
This exhibition will focus on Murakami's recent works, main…
