「ロマンティックな憧れ(Romantic Longing)」
これは矢沢あい原作の漫画「Paradise Kiss」から着想を得たもの。
モデルを志す若い女子高校生 紫がファッションの世界を通して、愛や自分探し、情熱の追求、人間関係の複雑さといった普遍的なテーマを探求する物語です。

私たちは創造性と個性が最も際立ち、活気があり、時に波乱に満ちたファッションの世界に身を置くモデルのPing Pingを通して、紫の役を再現しようと試みました。




We got the idea from the story “Paradise Kiss” written and illustrated by Ai Yazawa, that talks about a young high school girls aspiring to be a model called Yukari that explores universal themes like love, self-discovery, the pursuit of passion and the complexities of relationships through the fashion world.

“Paradise Kiss” is a poignant and visually stunning Manga capable of exploring different actual needs and problems of the modern society but always with a touch of glamour.
We tried to recreate the role of Yukari through our model Ping Ping that finds herself immersed in the vibrant and sometimes tumultuous world of fashion, where creativity and individuality reign supreme.

The main inspiration was definitely the Manga culture.
The term ‘Manga’ literally means ‘whimsical pictures’, how to talk of social issues and fragility with images.

We started from the meaning of the world and we celebrated and reinterpret Japan’s unique creativity and imagination through the female character often depicted sublimated by fantasies and romantic yearnings.

We combined Manga and fashion because they both share a symbiotic relationship with each influencing and inspiring the other in creative ways.
