The emerging designer has adopted the signature style of Comme des Garçons’ Rei Kawakubo, his mentor, yet continues to formulate his own aesthetic through experimenting with garments, creating elegant pieces in an avant-garde style. Nonimiya finds inspiration in craftsmanship and garments, experimenting with unconventional pattern-cutting and assembly techniques. The designer avoids sewing whenever possible, and one of his signature construction methods is putting garments together by linking various laser cut pieces. Nonimiya’s starting point is the textile and handcraftsmanship is at the core of the brand.
