AKIRA

 

The Akira brand is famous for fusing elements of East and West, both in terms of textiles (the merino wool gauze, vintage kimono), techniques (beading, origami folds) and designs (iconic Bonds-brand Australian singlets, kimono-style jackets).

The freedom afforded to Isogawa as an Australian immigrant emboldened him to experiment. He initially drew upon his Japanese roots, often reinterpreting the kimono. “Australia’s multiculturalism has definitely influenced my work,” he says.
