“Functional Beauty” with Kiryuyrik

After Japanese designer Masakatsu Takayanagi graduated from Bunka Fashion College, he worked for Yohji Yamamoto as a patternmaker.

Just seven years later, in 2002, Masakatstu launched Kiryuyrik in conjunction with Yuki Taniyama, who, in turn, is a graduate from Kyoto Seika University and Bunka Fashion College. She also worked for Yohji Yamamoto as a press agent.

Kiryuyrik’s concept can be summed up in two words: functional beauty.

Have a look at the entire collection here.
