Collection: The Viridi-anne

Designer Tomoaki Okaniwa was born in 1963 in Nagano Prefecture, Japan. After graduating from the Painting Department of Tokyo Zokei University, he taught himself pattern making and sewing, embarking on the path of fashion design. In 2001, he launched The Viridi-anne and has been presenting his works through exhibitions and installations in Paris since 2006.

Since its establishment, the brand has embraced black as its main color, with the concept of evoking a sense of nostalgia while possessing an atmosphere, that does not belong to any particular era or category. It aims to capture a quiet yet strong essence reminiscent of Wabi-sabi (Japanese art centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection) and pleasant tension. They continuously produce items that seem simple but unconventional, evoking a sense of disharmony.
