Takuya Morikawa cut his teeth at Issey Miyake before launching TaaKK in 2012, taking with him plentiful fabrication experience and a desire to push the boundaries of construction. for Spring/Summer 2021, Morikawa draws from Belgian artist René Magritte’s concept of “Destroying the Common Illusion,” which is also the collection’s name.

TaaKK’s signature items, including relaxed tailoring and shirts, reflect this mindset through unexpected fabric juxtaposition, as linen seamlessly transitions to cotton to wool, sometimes on the same garment. A reflective nylon and translucent polyester shirts further undercut convention, as hoods unexpectedly sprout from shirt collars and bomber sleeves gradate from from muted to warm shades. Floral patterns are gracefully translated to flowing blazers and pajama-style sets, further reinforcing the Magritte motif.

Review the collection above and watch the accompanying SS21 short film on TaaKK’s Instagram.
