  アヴァンギャルドなファッションで世界を驚かせた伝説な6人、「アントワープ6」。Dries van Noten、Walter van BeirendonckやAnn Demeulemeester。アントワープ王立芸術アカデミーを卒業した後に彼らがタッグを組み、ロンドンでゲリラ合同発表したことによって新しいファッション時代を巻き起こしたことで有名。その後バラバラになったが、今でも業界を引っ張っり続ける輝く彼ら。 実は、アントワープで同時期に学び、今輝きを放つデザイナー6名が日本にもいます。 ミキオサカベ、AKIRA NAKA、HIDEKI SEO、ユイマナカザト、そしてTARO HORIUCHI 氏。 彼らは海外のコンペティションで賞をとったり首席で卒業したりと、学生の頃から他を圧倒させる輝きを放つ逸材であったことは言うまでもないでしょう。業界を牽引することになるデザイナーたち。日本が世界に誇る多才な人材。 さて、自らデザイナーとしての道を切り開いた有能且つ努力家な彼らはその後どんなクリエーションを世に送り出してきたのでしょうか?さらに磨かれたセンスと独自の色をどんな風に作品に投影しているのでしょうか?彼らの近況とベストコレクションを通して、彼らの”今”を見てみましょう。 You will have heard of the famous “Antwerp 6″.

Taking a page from the wonderfully creepy “study of a pope” series by Francis Bacon comes this 2014-15 collection by Taro Horiuchi titled “Role Play”. The final collection is hardly a nightmarish vision however, with pretty pastels and lovely flower motifs set on a bed of graphical, sporty designs.
