Through various experiments, divka is seeking to create clothes that are yet to be known – even by us. We got the ideas of this season’s collection from the photos which children had taken; the photos being out of focus or not rightly composed. . . We somehow saw unexpected images got into the photos while the kids did not even know what they had captured. We create clothes by making a number of choices. There are many turning points during the creation, and the form we select to produce leads us to another choice of form. It is the process of clarifying the vagueness. Thus, we create the one and only image out of many possibilities. On the other hand, we strongly feel attracted by the sway of the image which toile happens to create before it becomes a complete form. The ongoing toile sometimes has a power to move your heart while even we do not know where it is going yet. What divka tried to reach for the collection is to print the impression of the sway onto the clothes.
About the Designer
divka is based in Tokyo, Japan. He studied at Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design, Bunka Fashion Graduate University and graduated in 2006. His collections are produced in Japan.
“Divka” is a design team established by two creators in 2011, based in Tokyo. We are developing the various projects through fashion. At the heart of the practices work is a concern to communicate to people through our works.
Divka is aiming to creating modern and beautiful garments through experimentation. We always need to start the process from a different perspective and focused on the fact that new things are on the other end of our pattern - through various experiments aimed at creating undiscovered design patterns, shapes, and colors that create a whole new pattern. Divka seeks to create clothes that are unknown, even to us.
In 2012, divka is selected as a finalist of Mango Fashion Award 4th Edition,
and got 2011 TOKYO New Designer Grand Prix professional category.
