once in a life


Each and every encounter at the Hong Kong Fashion Week was an once-in-a-life experience and treasure for me. I thank you all for your visit, business, and most of all, your kind words. Your comments were truly heart warming and very informative. I thank you again.

無事にHong Kong Fashion Weekの会期を終えて帰国しました。

I am thrilled by having witnessed female buyers and visitors from the Far-east Asian countries unanimously and positively accepted ATENARI jewelries. Not only prospective buyers and customers of Hong Kong, but also of the main land China, Malaysia, Singapore, et al. I am looking forward to see future business developments of ATENARI in these countries.




Above shown are my cozy displays on the show floor.


Across the aisle on the show floor were designers from Indonesia. It was fortunate and an honor to get to know them from a country where I didn't have much experience and contact. They were all young and filled with energy.


Visitors' fashion was another, yet the most noteworthy, highlight of the Fashion Week show. Sitting and standing in a trade show like this for a day or two, I could foresee what would be coming next in the future fashion trend.



This is an extra "fruit" (a fruit, indeed) of joining a trade show in Hong Kong. Kidney Mango. I ate them every day, if not twice a day. It's so tiny that you only need to peel it and throw the whole piece into your mouth. Anyone interested of selling this in Japan? PLEASE.

これはおまけの(まさに)「成果」であるkidney mango。滞在中毎日、あるいは1日に2度、食べていました。

one of a kind

A while ago, I found a gallery of world accessories in the Museum of Decorative Arts (Les Arts Decoratifs) in Paris.

I wondered what could be a masterpiece from Japan in such a gallery like this. I even doubted there wouldn't have been any item from Japan. My expectation was totally wrong and unjust.

The gallery stored exquisite and refined hair pins and combs decorated with the Makie technique. My eyes were glued to these "masterpieces".
They were never second to European fine jewelries around the same age.

Since this experience of mine, my goal has been to create a fashion style "de nos jours" (of today) with Makie made for modern women.

Though the Makie decoration technique has a history of more than 10,000 years, it is not straightforward for me to materialize Makie's beauty and warmth as an object "de nos jours", that really resonates with our instinct to wear today.

Now, July 2012, here is my answer to the proposition. Like anything was so in a distant past, each and every piece of my creations is one of a kind.


We will premiere this Makie collection at the Hong Kong Fashion Week this week.

Please visit and see ATENARI at 1B-DS34, the International Designers' Showcase in Hall 1B of Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.

以前、パリの装飾芸術美術館(Les Arts Decoratifs)に、世界の装身具を集めた展示室を見つけました。





2012年7月、これがひとつの提案です。 全ての商品が、かつてそのようであったように、身につける人と同じく one of a kind となっています。


香港コンベンションセンター インターナショナルデザイナーズショウケース Hall1B No.1B-DS34 でぜひご覧ください。
