Designer Fumito Ganryu launches his new eponymous label of FUMITO GANRYU at the men's wear trade fair, Pitti Imagine Uomo in Florence, Italy.
The esteemed designer joined Comme des Garçons as the pattern-maker of JUNYA WATANABE COMME des GARÇONS and later started a sub brand under the company, GANRYU in 2008. He resigned in late 2016 and officially started his journey for FUMITO GANRYU 2019SS as his first collection.
He incorporates materials used in performance wear in neoprene, expressing elements of tradition and street with clear colour tones in reconstructed pantaloons from Japanese hakamas into contemporary and oversized hoodies. The futuristic lifestyle and traditional silhouettes created, is the base of the brand design.
