Clothing Design

The first collection produced by Aguri Sagimori combines an homage to Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Birds” with classic design elements to produce a mixture of high concept clothing in her show. The collection, mostly black and red, combines laser cutouts following bird motifs with detailed graphical patterns of flowers and careful lattice work. Items in her line include body suits, denim gowns, lingerie, and tailored suits. The overall effect is one that is both conceptual and very much effective as a wearable fashion product. The ready to wear collection released in conjunction carries over the same themes, but to a much lesser, more practical extent.

Where to Buy

The clothing produced by Aguri Sagimori can currently be purchased through a number of different high fashion department stores in Tokyo, Japan.
