「Summer garden(夏の庭)」
「May Day」は国際労働組合による労働者の祭典で、毎年5月1日に開催されます。

このストーリーは、そんな瞬間を連想させる、ヴィンテージ素材や古着を使ってコレクションを制作するロシアのフレッシュなブランド「GERDA IRÈNE」とコラボレートしたもの。

夏の庭に向けてすべての準備をする、普段の「May Day」を表現しました。

“May Day” is a celebration of labourers and the working classes that is promoted by the international labour movement occurs every year on 1st of May.
In Russia it is often a day-off, so all people who have country house go to it and start summer season.

Country work is very dirty, so people change into old clothes that were brought to the country many years ago.
Therefore we collaborated with new Russian brand, Gerda Irene, which creates its? collection from vintage materials and old clothes.

The idea of this photoshoot is to show the ordinary “May Day”: when you prepare everything for the summer garden.
