Exhibition of JOJI KOJIMA was held at Mercedes-Benz connection in Roppongi during the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Tokyo. Exhibition "UTOPIA" of one-night limitation performed in Le baron de Paris in February. This time added new design of the series of "UTOPIA". I met with his collections about a year and a half before. I thought wonderful that the dignity which has a delicate detail and prejudice in visuals.
２月にLe baron de Parisにて行われた一夜限りの展示。その際に発表されていたUTOPIAに新作が加えられた展示会。
The jewelries associate with the organic curve which an animal has. Fascinating beautiful plant backs up "UTOPIA" of the animals which spread in a cage.
You can feel his beauty which from the photograph of the web. . Textures with the high-class feeling of ostrich and stingray are very comfortable views of the world which release quiet shining. Therefore, his collections show us a new form and has deviated from the design of the jewelry which we have seen. And when people are related in it, a new form will be produced. There is the aesthetic world which he aims at. Seeming to be small animals, such as a lizard and reptiles, the animals currently displayed transform to some birds when the man attaches to the body. The design which cut off the universal beauty which an animal has. I feel his design might be called as ART-PIECE in spite of belong a domain of "fashion".
