– gouk –
This is T. KUNITOMO’s designer, Takeshi Kunitomo’s new casual and mode style brand that uses “wa” as the theme. This brand has two concepts; “Onko-chishin”, (which means the old times gives us a warm feeling and nostalgia, and we should rediscover that part of Japan) and “Kachou-fuugetsu”, (which means the graceful and elegant world within nature. It also points to the profound and deep world).
Also, within gouk’s wa style, there’s “gouk-miyabi”, which is a wa-loli style fashion that has bewitching charm and splendor, or “ENPHA”, and “gouk-samurai”, which is designed based on the image of men who lived in the era between Edo and Meiji.

In the past, Kawaii Leaders have been invited to Tokyo to participate as models at fashion shows in Harajuku, featured in magazines, lead projects, and even became apprentices to designers. Us Kawaii staff have worked hard to realize everyone’s dreams in coordinating such events. These were broadcasted in NHK WORLD’s program “Kawaii International” that aired in 160 countries and regions.
