ROGGYKEI presents SS14 COLLECTION "IRON DUALISM" TEXT BY YASUYUKI ASANO

 

Dear Diane and Shaded Viewers,

 

 

ROGGYKEI is a Japanese fashion label based in Osaka, founded by Hitoshi Korogi and Keiko Miyakoshi in 2006.

 

With the concept "Clothes as accessories, accessories as clothes", the designer duo presents near-futuristic coutures created by bold colours, metallic materials and sculptural shapes, blurring the boundaries of existing product categories.

For SS14 they collaborated with London based Japanese animation artist Noriko Okaku, and personified the theme "Iron Dualism" by the strange world of "Tetsuo and Tetsuko" (iron boy and iron girl in Japanese).

Tetsuo is a kind gentleman who loves fishing, Japanese chess and curling, while Tetsuko is a brave tomboyish girl who loves cooking and tennis. His dream is to be a human and her dream is to have a baby, and their favourite number is 26, obviously.
