The label name is indicative of the collection presented

at Tokyo Fashion Week,  a/w  2015-

patchwork fabrication, emotive of a feel good from ‘cake effect’.

 

The design aesthetics is an unique interpretative of a gender focus on fashion:

“(creating) the masculinity that a woman wearing men’s clothes exudes,

and (applying) it back to men’s fashion.”

It is a modern label with a modern design vision

which manages to be readily translatable from

runway fashion to everyday wear.

When asked at interview if he had any advice for other emerging designers,

Mr. Morino offered insight from his observations of recent runway presentations:

 

“… if I had to say one thing, it would be that some men’s runway shows here are deviating too far from something wearable. There has to be a balance between entertainment and what is represented should be able to be worn on the street.”
