Tatsuro Horikawa: “Black is always the base of my creative palette. “Black” symbolizes the Avant-Garde and has a deep spiritual and noble meaning for me. I am obsessed by the image of “Black” in Japanese Religion , in Zen. It represents the crazy darkness hidden in the shadows away from the light. It is the total color of complete and utter grief.”

The fashion show for SS17 collection was presented in the dark ambient of La Générale artistic space and was accompanied by the special live performance of Knives.
