While Ganryu was launched in 2007, we've only begun to see its presence in Western markets over the past few seasons. Following Junya Watanabe's trail, both as a pattern maker and then with his own collection under the Comme des Garçons umbrella, Fumito Ganryu has created something unique within the realm that the overarching brand occupies. His line offers a fresh approach to wearable items, with a goal of creating "free and forward-looking" pieces. Oki-ni spoke to him about his inspiration and the AW15 collection.
