Stazione Leopolda

The collaboration continues between Pitti Immagine and the Japan Fashion Week Organization, a two year partnership that aims to focus on the most promising talents on the Japanese fashion scene. After Sulvam, the designer Yoshio Kubo will present his unique style with a fashion show. 

"There are so many outfits in the world, and people keep buying and wearing outfits for daily life. The large number of clothes has paralyzed peopleʼs thinking of wearing and dressing. Therefore, I like to design clothing that makes people think meaning of details and wearing." - Yoshio Kubo
