DRESSEDUNDRESSED Wants to Take Your Clothes Off.
You might wonder if Emiko Sato and Takeshi Kitazawa were watching the Super Bowl on 1 February 2004, because if the whole world felt the ripples from Nipplegate, then it would seem as if the designer duo took Janet Jackson’s wardrobe malfunction as a principle source of inspiration for their future label, DRESSEDUNDRESSED.
Eight years later, the pair would present their first runway show during Autumn/Winter Tokyo Fashion Week and in 2013 their capsule collection saw them become finalists in the International Woolmark Prize. Ever since, DRESSEDUNDRESSED has been collecting awards and recognition from across the globe with their clothes that are both androgynous and sexy.
With their 2018 Autumn/Winter collection, the label has truly aligned itself with its name. Their garments, when not falling off in shreds, are resolutely transparent, creating an improbable alliance between sensuality and humour. DRESSEDUNDRESSED undresses pretentions to trends.
