Shinya Kozuka

London-schooled Shinya Kozuka founded his namesake brand in 2013, along with partner Saki Yukimoto, post-graduation from Central Saint Martins. Designing and producing from Kyoto, Japan, Kozuka's area of specialization seems to rest on "oversized tailoring," resulting in garments both made to fit to the tee yet elegantly draping over the body: sleeve do not fall past the wrists, and shoulder lines do not drop past the curve. The balance of rigid and fluid silhouettes overlap into his A/W17 anthology, retouching classic menswear pieces with subtleties such as stenciling while reimagining essentials such as flannels into coats.
