Mr. Williams returns for a second year in the row to Tokyo. I unfortnately did not. But luckily, ACL gets sprnklings of his visit every now and then. The latest is a unique look at a designer whose work with a heritage outwear company, is more known than his own line – at least outside of Japan.
“Tokihito is probably best known (though I think he still flies largely under the radar) for his wildly successful (and completely badass) Barbour Beacon collection. Outside of that, Tokihito and his own line TO KI TO don’t have much of a presence outside of Japan, something that needs to change. Tokihito has some serious design skills and is deserving of all of the good words that can be sent his way. When it comes down to it, I wouldn’t be afraid to say he is one of the best designers in the world.”
