PUGMENT

Tokyo based fashion label

Biography

PUGMENT is Tokyo based fashion label founded in 2014.

We extract the relationship between clothing and people/cities/societies/time, and create clothing based on this relationship. We take pictures of clothes that had fallen on the street, burn clothes to make pigments, quote pictures of runways published on the net, etc. and create collections by manipulating the surroundings of clothing and clothing.

In June 2017, at the announcement of "Spring2018", we did the first runway for us at Tokyo artist run space "workstation".
