Brand Profile
[Established year] 2017

HAVING GROWN UP DURING THE 90S IN JAPAN, KOZABURO’S AESTHETIC IS HEAVILY INSPIRED BY MUSIC SUBCULTURES AND VARIOUS STREET STYLES HE WAS EXPOSED TO DURING THE PERIOD. HIS ACADEMIC AND PROFESSIONAL BACKGROUND ALWAYS PREVAILS WHEN IT COMES TO CONSIDERATION OF QUALITY OF GARMENTS, FITS AND FINISHING WHICH IS GROUNDED IN HIS TAILORING SKILL. TIMELESS DESIGN OF CLASSIC MEN’S APPAREL IS AT THE CORE OF HIS AESTHETIC. THE JUXTAPOSITION OF HIGH FASHION AND STREET CULTURE HAS COME TO DEFINE THE UNIQUELY POETIC AND CONTEMPORARY - YET NOT TEMPORARY – STYLE OF KOZABURO.
