タイツまで Naked になればいい！台湾を拠点にするストリートスタイルとアートの”it”なクリエイターカップル”Naked”を紹介。
I was asked a question in an interview recently, “How do you discover the topics you introduce? Even locals don’t know a lot of the brands!” I ask myself the same thing! Of course in Japan it’s easier since I can make discoveries at trade shows and exhibits. As for the others, one of the ways is through social media…stumbling upon photos tagged with designers I’d never heard of, clicking through to thei webpages or Googling them and coming up with a brand new discovery.
And discovery is what led to me get Naked.
I mean, discover “Naked”.
A cool art duo based in Taiwan have a signature aesthetic of colorful shapes, doodles and cut-paste collage work. They started out getting notoriety through their displays for stores:
Now they have parlayed their particular taste into a successful line of hand-made tights that are gaining popularity far outside their native Taiwan.
Case in point, they have become close with WuT Berlin, the fashion-forward boutique in Aoyama and held a pop-up shop together in Taiwan.
And here’s the good news; Naked’s tights are available for sale there and online (rejoice!!). Many are sold out…they seem to be quite popular!
I think I love them because they are a product of the street aesthetic, artists, and are able to even live off of it. Oh, and they respond quickly to messages with cute little emojis… they are prfessional with a dose of “just don’t give a fuck”.
