Kenta Matsushige is a young Japanese designer, that in 2012 graduated from the Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne, and who won The Grand Prix du Jury Premiere Vision at the latest (29th) Hyeres Festival with his F/W 2014/2015 collection “Hinabi”.
« A work installed within a bucolic setting orin a small provincial town, will have more presence than lost in a city. My collection aims to be urban and modern whilst respecting hinabi, pastoral beauty, which is in opposition to miyabi, urban beauty ».
Oversize meets light and contoured in muted and beige tones. A big accent on high level materials, execution and all “put together” with a seamless craftsmanship principle.
He lives and works now in Paris. All his pieces, as the winning collection, are produced in Japan.
