KIDILL Autumn Winter 2021-22 Collection “Desire”
Keeping his own style and creation, KIDILL designer Hiroaki Sueyasu has been presenting his creation independently in Paris since 2019, for the 2021-22AW collection, KIDILL will be on the official schedule of Paris Fashion Week for the first time. He believes it’ s his mission to show a strong creation as a fashion designer in this time when the world is less energized with the COVID-19 outbreak.
The designer says, “Fashion show is the best platform for me to express what I have created and present the power of fashion that me and my team trusts in. For me to progress without fear will make my future and believe that this energy will convey on to the others. Without swaying on the trends I want to pursue creating the clothes with the punk mind. It is clear what I have to do now, to show my collection without fearing the changes.”
2021-22AW collaborated with the next generation artist Jesse Draxler based in LA. The one and only artist that expresses the darkness by different methods such as painting and collage, the jet black Jesse creates is filled with beauty and sophistication. The mix of Jesse’ s darkness and the punk style of KIDILL shown through the original artwork created for this creation elevates to the next new style.
Collaborations being one of the base KIDILL, the designer deeply loves art and the music culture and believes that working with artists with an intuitive mind brings an innovative change and growth.
From 2020 every season KIDILL collaborates with EDWIN, a reputable Japan denim brand. The collaboration with their traditional craftsmanship, high skilled sewing techniques producing high quality denim, and working on sustainability by re-using discarded fabrics and building a wastewater treatment facility for the washed indigo water brings KIDILL a futuristic change.
For the show this season, the live music by Keiji Haino resonating with the present attitude of KIDILL was the most important essence and element. The crux of the brand for 21AW was to carry out the firm belief in oneself as Keiji Haino is doing, and this was the simplest reason.
