Hiroko Koshino, 80 years old, published a memorial book to celebrate her 60th year as a designer. It features her collection looks from 1978 to 2017 and unpublished paintings.
Koshino Hiroko has been questioning the “true richness”.
She found the truly rich lifestyle by creating her own world of fashion and art in harmony with Japanese culture of clothing, food, housing, leisure, relaxation, knowledge and beauty, while flexibly adopting other cultures. Composed of seven chapters titled ''emptiness'', ''naturalness'', ''essentiality'', ''pairings'', ''cultivation'', ''play'' and ''form'', the book visualizes the philosophy of Hiroko Koshino brand and presents the “true richness” that Hiroko Koshino aims to bring about in her daily creations.
Featuring Mr. Ken Miki as the art director, and with forewords by Mr. Tadao Ando and Mr. Yutaka Mino, this book is the culmination of Hiroko Koshino who freely travels between the mode and art. It is available in bookstores across Japan. Please check it out.
