CRASH POP

Fashion is in a constant state of flux just as Japan’s natural landscape faces perpetual change.


With the passing of each year’s seasons, the land is gradually refashioned, eventually bringing great changes. It is impossible to tell when devastating earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, tsunamis or typhoons may strike, transforming the landscape in an instant.

The creativity of the Japanese people – echoing the process of natural change – is also unpredictable, producing a huge range of unique works.

The emerging designers featured in ’Crash Pop’ take inspiration from their own diverse backgrounds and reflect the reality of contemporary Japan.
