Dandyism

Minus-Jpn is one of our newly discovered favourite menswear labels hailing from Japan. Monochrome and minimal at its best, Minus-Jpn combines strict lines with light fabrics, definign dandyism in 2017. We interviewed designer Toru Fujimoto, the genius behind the brand.

How did you decide to start designing clothes?

I was affected by many designer during my high school days. Vivienne Westwood, Raf Simons, Veronique Branquinho, As four, Sebastien Meunier, etc… I wanted to be a fashion designer just like them. And so, I started “MINUS” with my friends’ help during professional school days.

What is your inspiration?

“KIMONO”and the social situation.

What is your motto in life?

I will say this in Japanese because it is hard to translate: 自分両腕だけで食っていこうって人がそんなに簡単に反省しちゃいけない。
