ABOUT

現実に潜むファンタジーを、本質的な感覚で切りとっていく。
ファッションを生きる行為そのものと捉え、それを纏うひとの生き方や姿勢が感じられる衣服を提案していきます。

Driven by the philosophy that fashion is a posture, a performance, and a living act, AKIKOAOKI seeks to create a novel and nostalgic world of fashion by drawing out the fantasy that hides beneath the surface of everyday life.
Through a deconstruction and reassembly of the essence of womenswear, AKIKOAOKI offers a vision that is not only classic and delicate, but also unique, subversive and individual.
