Matohu designers Hiroyuki Horihata and Makiko Sekiguchi stayed true to their mission to provide fresh and innovative takes on kimonos and traditional Japanese apparel. Inspired by a trip to a Kyoto antique fair and their discovery of an old iron tool repurposed as a wall decoration, they set out to use unusual fabrics like a rubberized material adept for a tablecloth and a loose knit resembling a fishing net.
They provided texture to a collection full of soft grays with accents of soft yellow, mint green and eggshell blue. Cocoon-like head gear complete the look.
