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.
