Designer: Yuta Hosokawa
The brand name READYMADE asserts its antithesis against ready-made items. This brand circulates disused items to be destroyed and transforms them by giving a new life.
From its inception, Hosokawa conveys his antiwar message for the world, a vision where war and dispute are not worthy, and his stance against mass production by using vintage military fabrics and giving a new value to a disposed duffle bag or a tent.
