YOJIRO KAKE is a Japanese fashion designer label currently based in Pistoia.
Established by Yojiro Kake since 2013, the studio was located in Florence Italy after he graduated from POLIMODA. The brand is consist of the designer/pattern-maker Yojiro Kake from Japan, student/assistant Miharu Kobayashi from Japan, direction by Oka HuiYun Lin from Taiwan, and current intern Ryota Sakai from POLIMODA.

For the passion of western menswear, Yojiro applies the tailoring techniques into all the collections, on the other hand he loves rich volume and detailed decoration seeking for visual impact. Mixing with fresh ideas the garments are full of surprises. Just like children’s dreams – romantic innocence and ephemeral anxiety, the mood of YOJIRO KAKE illustrates a story to express those wordless contexts.


DESIGNER YOJIRO KAKE

Yojiro Kake was born in Hyogo Japan.
After finishing high school he went onto study at the Ueda Yasuko school of Fashion in Osaka Japan. For 3 years he pursued the technical skills required in womenswear and menswear techniques. After graduating he worked within a private company as pattern-maker and designer. While he still cherished his work he understood that in this area of manufacturing, the only objective was at making a profit.

He soon realised a need to return to study fashion outside of Japan in order to rediscover and establish his own ideas, beliefs and creativity. He left the company and made the life changing decision to study at Polimoda International Institute of Fashion Design & Marketing in Florence Italy.
