KH Gallery Ginza will hold the exposition on the occasion of commemorative publication of “HIROKO KOSHINO | it is as it is” celebrating Hiroko Koshino’s 60th anniversary as a designer.

The book features Hiroko Koshino’s collection looks from the 1978 to 2017 Autumn/Winter and paintings that she drew over the years. The exposition space will be designed by the graphic designer Ken Miki who also designed the book. Eight-meter three-dimensional art objects will visualize Hiroko Koshino’s philosophy according to the seven chapters of the book titled through “emptiness”, ”naturalness”, ”essentiality”, ”pairings”, ”cultivation”, ”play” and ”form”. The collection looks and paintings will also be presented to create the world of Hiroko Koshino. Moreover, the atelier where she has made clothes and paintings will be reproduced to directly convey her passion for the creation.

Hiroko Koshino has been pursuing a truly rich lifestyle by creating her own world of fashion and art in harmony with Japanese culture of clothing, food, housing, leisure, relaxation, knowledge and beauty, while flexibly adopting other cultures. She wishes to pass on its history and philosophy to society and to the next generation. Please enjoy the book “HIROKO KOSHINO | it is as it is”-the culmination of Koshino Hiroko who freely travels between the mode and art-and her history of creation.
