Following their highly successful SS2019 show in September of last year, TOKKOU - https://www.tokkou.co.uk/ - will be stocking their SS2019 collection at Pure Labels , Notting Hill from 23rd May - 22nd June 2019, and celebrating their comeback with an exclusive fashion show and event line up (please see below for details).
TOKKOU is a contemporary Japanese clothing brand based in London that stays true to its Japanese roots whilst also having a voice of its own, creating an empowered and lasting impact. The brand’s unique designs draw inspiration from the traditional Japanese youth subculture, known as bosozoku . Bosozoku is all about over-the-top modified motorcycles, overly-styled hairdos, leather jackets, overalls, tall boots and round sunglasses (think American greaser culture on steroids).
The SS2019 ‘Shine in the Dark’ is collection is defined by combining genuine Japanese Tokkou-fuku and Sotsu-Ran's fabrics with traditional Japanese processes and sewing techniques. The collection covers men’s and women’s ready-to-wear itmes designed by characteristics of Bousou-zoku through tailoring, considered design and striking embroidery.
TOKKOU is differentiated from other larger contemporary brands by its attention to detail and highly-skilled traditional craftsmanship and use of high-end machinery, Japanese textiles and denim - all of which are hard to find in most modern contemporary styles. Lovers of Japanese fashion will relish the high-trend yet authentic traditional Japanese wear, which can be fashioned for any occasion. Embodying the true spirit of bosozoku, or the samurai spirit, the line is designed to rebel against the new social order, whilst simultaneously reclaiming a sense of elegance and eccentricity alongside riotousness.
