322A Canal Street, New York City

Kozaburo Akasaka is the Tokyo-bred designer behind KOZABURO. Akasaka’s aesthetic is inspired by the cultures and street styles he was exposed to during his academic and professional experiences grown up. Focusing on menswear, these experiences are shown through the tailoring and fit of his garments.

 

KOZABURO’s activation at 322A Canal Street will begin with the “Howling love in America” object installation, consisting of custom a made coyote taxidermy and rug, as well as a copper bar intentionally positioned to mimic the famous art performance “I love America and America loves me” by Joseph Beuys. The coyote was created by plastic form covered by hand woven fabric made from recycled material, while the rug, made for KOZABURO’s Autumn/Winter 18 collection, was hand crafted during his road trip through New Mexico by a local hand weaver from Chimayo.

 

Beginning September 18th, KOZABURO will showcase the AW18 “Ghost Ranch” pop-up, the brand's first ever pop-up, followed by a sample sale through from the 25th - 29th.
