The Line no.7 collection was created as a continuation of the Urban village collection.
Therefore Line No.7 collection problematizes the negative impacts of urbanization in Japan and the globalization of the traditional Japanese clothing item - kimono. It also follows the history of kimono and how it changes. The history of the kimono is explored and there is a constant emphasis on the collar - eri and fold - okumi, which are modified in the collection.
On flat surfaces of kimono most commonly to find are floral and animal motifs, in the collection named Line No. 7 comes to their replacement with underground railways as a personification of threats to animal species. The subway networks are based on the four largest cities in Japan, Tokyo, Yokohama, Osaka and Nagoya.
The negative impacts of urbanization are reflected on animal species that become endangered by the loss of habitats. Some of the animals that are being explored for the purpose of making the collection are Bonin's flying fox, Japanese giant salamander, Red crowned crane, Hawksbill Sea Turtle, Horned Puffin and Amami rabbit.
The collection Line No.7 seeks to promote people's consciousness through their animal forms. All clothing items are inspired by the above-mentioned animal species and in certain segments of clothing items can be recognized by certain animals. Printing the map of subway trains on clothing is trying to achieve extra dramatics.
