Rooms Fashion Exhibition, Tokyo, Japan

mannine is the brand new apparel brand of Manri Kishimoto, a graduate of London’s Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design. “I like prints and traveling,” explains Kishimoto, “so I try to design clothes that use prints and that are fun for people on a trip.”

Kishimoto uses wool, cotton and silk as her main materials. “They feel good on the skin.” Her clothes flow around the body to make it easy to move. Think of the effect you get with the wind gently blowing your clothes in all directions when you walk on a beautiful foreign beach.

Kjeld Duits About the Author

Inspired by the stunningly creative street fashion that exploded on the streets of Tokyo and Osaka in the late 1990’s, photo-journalist Kjeld Duits launched JAPANESE STREETS in 2002. This makes JS one of the first fashion blogs on the net, and the very first to cover Japanese street fashion.

@Danielle: Glad you like the mannine creations, Danielle. The prints immediately attracted my attention, in spite of having already been bombarded by hundreds of competing designs at rooms…

Definitely. Looking through the other designers’ exhibits, I was impressed, but mannine definitely matched the aesthetic that I tend to gravitate towards. The interesting prints and structuring of the clothing is really appealing. Glad you introduced them on your blog.
