Andreas Murkudis is fascinated by Japanese culture. On a recent trip to Tokyo, he scoured its teeming streets and quiet alleys for architectural inspiration. With his iPhone, Andreas captured the city’s apartment buildings, traditional architecture and burgeoning developments with his inimitable eye for detail and scale. It was also an opportunity to visit the studios of some of the city’s most exciting new design names.

Andreas has always loved Japanese fashion — from Yohji Yamamoto to Issey Miyake — and 2017 brings a reinvigorated interest in Japanese brands. For women, there’s deconstructed bohemianism courtesy of Jean Genie & Hungry Freaks, Daddy; Keiko Onose’s sculpted ready-to-wear for her new label, Cyclas; Pas de Calais‘ pared-down luxury; and Yohji Yamamoto alumnus Mitsuru Nishizaki’s take on refined comfort for his label, Ujoh. For men, in addition to Issey Miyake, there’s now Kolor as well. Tokyo has long been an incubator for radical design; the new wave at Andreas Murkudis mirrors a growing excitement for the city’s new guard.
