The Wearability of Enhance Ready to Wear
Having graduated in 1993, Mazakuzu Takeguchi created his first brand in 1994. With a professional trajectory that saw him gain experience with a number of different brands, each with varying degrees of success, Takeguchi finally launched Enhance in 2016.
Maybe it’s because he’s already done the rounds, but Takeguchi doesn’t have pretentions to radical reinvention; his focus is instead on creating coherent, wearable garments. During the last Tokyo Amazon Fashion Week, his 2018 Autumn/Winter collection for Enhance proved Takeguchi’s predilection for a gothic aesthetic with asymmetrical leanings. From ripped fabric to interminable fringing and crumpled origami textures, you heard it here first, irregularity is the new black.
