After spending over a decade working with Japanese brand Comme des Garçons, Fumito Ganryu stepped into the menswear spotlight to debut his eponymous label at Pitti Uomo 94. The Fukuoka-borne designer first garnered notice while working under Junya Watanabe as a pattern maker. Ganryu himself was given the opportunity to design his own diffusion line for Comme des Garçons in 2007 where he built a supportive and loyal following during his decade-long stint with the label. Consistently celebrated for his unique ability to blend elements of streetwear and workwear, Fumito Ganryu's forward-thinking casualwear is the result of a pointed emphasis on attention-to-detail. The designer looks to create clothing that caters to the 21st century while encouraging a relationship between nature and the city. Synthetic, technically-charged fabrics stand alongside traditional Japanese methods of natural indigo-dying. Ganryu's menswear is challenging but wearable: contemporary tropes are tooled with playful details to produce a finished product that is equal parts recognizable yet wholly unexpected, providing an alternative option to the modern menswear landscape.
