TAAKK Spring Summer 2023 at Paris Men’s Fashion Week

Japanese menswear brand TAAKK is pleased to present its latest collection for the SPRING-SUMMER 2023 season.

Since TAAKK’s founding, designer Morikawa has continued to reshape the possibilities of menswear design with a multidisciplinary approach – incorporating extensive material research and imaginative fabric treatments into his creations and collaborating with expert technicians to bring these ideas to reality.

The SPRING-SUMMER 2023 season started with Designer Morikawa’s incessant desire to create something beautiful.

It was an endeavor where he searched in fashion the same element that speaks to the deepest depths of the human soul in works such as paintings, novels, and poetry.

There was no particular theme for the season; no attempt to create something ‘modern’ on the surface level. This went beyond themes and semantics.

It was the simple need to create a collection that was both beautiful and strong. A piece that touched the innards of the soul, inducing a sort of craze within.

This collection is centered around the textures of compound fabrics and the elegance of our immediate surroundings expressed through graphics.

The TAAKK SPRING-SUMMER 2023 collection will debut physically and virtually JUNE 21ST 2022 and will be available in select stores worldwide starting DECEMBER 2022.
