Drip Drip New Fumito Ganryu
The SSENSE Exclusive Capsule Collection is Now Available
We are 60% water. Dihydrogen monoxide is our better half—the half that keeps us lingering by a river’s edge, or relishing the sound of rain. Japanese designer, Fumito Ganryu, wishes to foster this interaction with nature. Just as ocean tides are affected by a new or full moon, so too are our moods. Water is next-of-kin. It makes sense then, that we are often at our most comfortable when we are close to water; splashed by it, submerged in it, filled with it; watching it as it moves past us. But we are not amphibious—water can also be dangerous. Compromise our hot-blooded bodies. Materials like neoprene and rubber allow the wearer to protect themselves from water—in order to be nearer to it. Fumito Ganryu synthesizes clothing to get wet in.
As a precursor for his eponymous label, the Comme des Garcons ex-pat’s Spring/Summer 2019 capsule collection teaser is exclusive to SSENSE. Because nobody is complete without their better half.
