For her latest collection, Misora Nakamori collaborated with Taguchi Orimono, a former Kimono textile weaver from Hachioji (Tokyo region) to develop a custom fabric they call “Gisha”.
While researching ways to lighten her preferred heavier textured fabrics, Misora and Taguchi recovered traditional techniques to create a woven lace like composition that gives a special texture to the surface of the fabric. The beauty of “Gisha” is enhanced when hit by sunlight; it is subtle yet elegant and gains character with time and wear.
“Gisha” was the starting point for her exploratory Fall/Winter 2022 Collection. Misora deploys variations in her study with coats, dresses, pants, skirts, shorts & an overall, and revisits staples from her previous offerings: her discernible inside-out raw jacquard, logoed bodysuits and leggings, leather & paint works.
Rather than creative splits, Misora Nakamori dotes on research, and she is happy with letting it define her voice…for now.
