Check Out the Jackets and Suits at the Naoki Takizawa Fitting Room in Daikanyama
In Daikanyama, one of the trendiest creative scenes in Tokyo, a new fashion salon has opened its doors. The Naoki Takizawa Fitting Room is a concept shop by the fashion designer of that name. An array of men’s wear, including especially the B Tokyo label centered on blazers and the relaunched Naoki Takizawa label, greet the visitor.
The B Tokyo style playfully features the ‘B’ button, which is the brand’s logo, representing a sensibility of compact size. Also on display are one-of-a-kind blazers using rare fabrics selected by Takizawa himself from providers such as Japan Wool Textile of the Nikke Group, and Kuzuri Keori, both of which have ateliers in Aichi over a century old, as well as Harrisons of Edinburgh. He has also launched a personalized made-to-order service, allowing customers to select fabrics, buttons, and linings.
Takizawa also came up with the concept of ‘shirts and items inspired by shirts’. He is developing items that combine different fabrics and sewing, such as using fabric in a MA-1 jacket, on a base of two types of pattern for men’s dress shirts and men’s shirts.
Those two brands give an experience of Takizawa’s aesthetic sensibility. When you think about how often you wear a jacket or shirt, next time you want an outfit you can love for a long time, why not pick it out here?
