NOIR KEI NINOMIYA IS AN AVANT-GARDE SARTORIAL DREAM FOR WOMEN. IMPLEMENTING A REMARKABLE AND SENSUOUS APPROACH, THE JAPANESE LUXURY READY-TO-WEAR DESIGNER IS KNOWN FOR CREATING EXTRAVAGANT WORKS OF WEARABLE ART USING EXPERIMENTAL TECHNIQUES. AFTER LEAVING THE ROYAL ACADEMY OF FINE ARTS IN ANTWERP TO WORK FOR REI KAWAKUBO, HE BRANCHED OUT TO EMBARK ON HIS OWN VISIONARY LABEL JUST FOUR YEARS LATER. FINDING INSPIRATION IN TEXTILES AND THEIR CONSTRUCTION, NINOMIYA EVADES SEWING WHEN POSSIBLE, PREFERRING INSTEAD TO USE FINE METAL PARTS LIKE RIVETS, SNAPS OR GROMMETS FOR CONNECTING FABRICS. PRESENTING INDIVIDUAL AND HANDMADE WOMENSWEAR DESIGNS SINCE 2012, THE UNCONVENTIONAL CREATOR ASSEMBLES COMPLEX STRUCTURES BY REPLICATING AND FUSING TOGETHER SMALL PARTS TO GENERATE STYLES WITH VOLUME. RUFFLED SHIRTS, STUDDED SHOES AND WOOL PANTS ARE BALANCED WITH A SOFTNESS AND EDGE AND ARE OFTEN PUNCTUATED BY LASER-CUT DETAILING.
