KOMAKINO

THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN FASHION AND YOUTHFUL SUBCULTURES IS NOTHING NEW TO KOMAKINO, A BRAND THAT DRAWS ITS INSPIRATION FROM A SUBVERSIVE MIX OF REBELLION, MUSIC AND TRIBALISM. CO-FOUNDED AND HELMED BY ITALIAN-BORN, LONDON-BASED DESIGNER, FEDERICO CAPALBO, THE LABEL DERIVES ITS NAME FROM THE 1980 JOY DIVISION SINGLE AND “HYPNOTIC” JAPANESE DANCE, AND MAINTAINS A STRONG IDENTITY EACH SEASON AS A FASHION LABEL FOR OUTSIDERS.
