A new and super-creative generation of Fashion Samurai is emerging in Japan and internationally, bravely setting out to redefine men’s kimono styles by keeping tradition alive while infusing it with new life. Their unique ensembles make a lasting impression at weddings, Kabuki theater, hip restaurants, or just hanging out.

For this groundbreaking exhibition, twelve international designers and stylists from Japan, Europe, and the United States contribute their innovative designs. Urban, elegant, or practical, they are all refreshingly modern and avant-garde coordinations, showcasing the new wave of male Wafuku, off-the-beaten-track, risky, whimsical, yet so worldly and sophisticated. Nearly two dozen outfits are presented at Globus Washitsu, the prefect setting of a Japanese teahouse with fine tatami mats and shoji screens.

Admission: Free
