STUDIO SHIORI SUZUKI is a new womenswear label led by London based, Japanese creative director Shiori Suzuki. An alumni of the prestigious Central Saint Martins womenswear course in 2007, Suzuki worked for many luxury brands in London, New York and Tokyo, gaining experience and refining her skills.
In 2016 she decided to establish STUDIO SHIORI SUZUKI as an independent practice to explore and articulate her ideas of what clothing can be. Having presented the label’s first two collections, Volcanic (Autumn Winter 2016-17) and Red & Black (Spring Summer 2017), in Tokyo last year, STUDIO SHIORI SUZUKI is excited to be bring the collections back to London and to be presenting on home turf for the first time in this young label’s history.
SS18 sees Suzuki taking on a colourful and dazzling persona. With clashing of colours and a mix of sheer and opaque fabrics Suzuki rebels against norms. The collection is for those who see fashion as a dare that is to be embraced. Whilst being held down by more conventional and wearable pieces Suzuki manages to entice the consumer to experiment with other elements. Checkers and polka dots introduce an image of play to the collection showing that these garments are to be enjoyed and not taken too seriously. The Shiori Suzuki customer must be willing to entertain the idea that what they wear can be fun and enjoyable. With this state of mind it should be very exciting to see where Suzuki takes fashion next.
