"I wanted to make a good brand that I could grow old with. When I become 60, I’m planning to make clothes for 60-year-olds at NAISSANCE."
--- Takashi Kumagai
With roles as a stylist, photographer and brand director under his belt, Takashi Kumagai now assumes the position of designer for NAISSANCE. The label, taking inspiration from Frank Lloyd Wright’s A Testament, abides by certain rules: good design, quality materials, and honesty in construction. Takashi aims for his garments to be borderless, enhancing one's style rather than being solely a fashion brand.
Takashi’s pieces range from tailored overcoats to casual pajama shirts, truly embodying every aspect of the designer’s lifestyle. We at No Man Walks Alone admire the honesty behind Takashi’s approach to design: design both for himself and to guide others through his vision.
