Vol. 59 Short Film 6

 

KAMILAVKA

The designer, Masakazu Furusawa, seven years of practice and study under a pioneer of hat making, Akio Hirata who has passed away about a year ago, he filmed himself with his skilled-set of hat making to show us the process of how hat with a couture element is born. KAMILAVKA, established in 2014, former name of his atelier, Japanese unisex hat maison gained the sensitivity from his mentor to appreciate the means of hat.
If brim of the hat is too wide, people tend to feel a little step-back when greeting with a traditional Japanese bowing method, trouble carrying around if too big, time-consuming to fix a hair if size don’t match, these factors represent a careful attention to details to making hat as if it needs to be made with a perfect scale.

ハットには昔から縁がなく、すこしカッコつけてるように見えてあまり好きではなかった。デザイナーの作る光景を目の当たりにし、こんな風にハットが出来ているとは知らなかったので大変驚いた。非常に神経を使い、微妙な調整が必要なのであろう。しかし完成品は非常に美しく、筆者もぜひ一つは欲しいと思った。

I got to introduce about them a little while ago because simply I just would like to introduce who they are to the world as well as I love their simplicity-oriented product with a passionate philosophy in mind. Seeking a possibility of Japanese shoe making, many roads to walk down as if you participate in marathon, just like anyone else that they face a long road of possibility as known as the life to change and prosper for the better. Probably we all need to walk down our own life with something that enables us to be down-to-earth.

大阪で活躍しているシューズブランドのプロモーションフィルム。構成、音楽も非常にシンプルでシューズとしての立ち位置や、可能性を求める姿勢、日本のブランドとしてのプライドなど至る所に熱意を感じる。強いて言うのであればスリッポンタイプもあってもいいと思う。彼らの技術を用いたオリジナルのスリッポンを作って欲しいと思った。
