Excess and over the top is what describes Hiromichi Ochiai's label FACETASM best. Big shapes and sizes, almost armor-like, for both sexes are what makes this label stand out. It's designer is a Bunka Fashion Graduate that entered the fashion scene with his label in 2007. Heavy knitted cable jumpers, coach jackets, plaid shirts, reworked denims and big (really, really BIG) outerwear pieces in avant-garde shapes redesigned in streetwear colors and prints to balance the Tokyo fashion scale
The late Karl Lagerfeld praised the innovation of Hiromichi Ochiai, the founder of the brand, and Ochiai went on to win the Tokyo Fashion Award, gathering even more international momentum. There could not be a more appropriate honor because FACETASM is all about everything Tokyo, capturing the fun and experimental atmosphere of the metropolis.
