“His ruffled creations bring joyful entertainment and I wanted to bring those to a practical level to our everyday life through the hybridization of our two styles,” Abe explained in an exchange with Vogue.
Commenting on the art of partnership, Abe explained, “For me, there needs to be a genuine connection with any collaboration I take part in, and it is always important to me that there is a balance between the two brands and a genuine interest in both sides.”
Sacai and Koizuma’s floofy bags first debuted during fall 2020 as included in the Hello Sacai pop up store initiative.
Koizumi’s interest in fashion began from seeing his fashion-loving mother in his childhood. His encounter with the book John Galliano for Dior in his early teen was a very eye-opening event and made him decide to become a fashion designer.
His brand “TOMO KOIZUMI” was successfully launched in 2011, after a boutique owner was attracted and picked the dress – which he created while he was a university student. Ever since he earned his experiences as assistants of stylist and costume artist, and then moved on to the next career step as a costume designer.
In February 2019, his very first runway show took place in New York with the supports of the world-famous Katie Grand, Marc Jacobs, and KCD Public Relations, Inc.
Bright colours and bold silhouettes are the significant characteristics of his made-to-order collections and costumes, and celebrities and artists worldwide favour his such designs.
