    A&S | Out of Proportion

    ARTS&SCIENCE presents “Out of Proportion”, a new proposal towards our genderless collection for the coming season.

    “Out of Proportion” pieces are unique for their aerial silhouettes made possible by a bold enlargement of classical and existing shapes. While staying true to existing measurements of our necklines and sleeves, the calculated pattern exhibits a contrast between parts that are voluminous and those that embrace the body.

    Shown here are excerpts from the collection which will be available at stores in February and March. Due to its design and its variation in sizes, this gender free item will suits many.

The exhibition will showcase 100 works that Kenichi Takanaka has created around the theme of soil, accompanied by a hanging calligraphic scroll.

    The wife pitied the hen that was killed by the weasel, and she made a soup out of its corpse. She was in awe after taking one bite, saying, “The weasel must have been a skillful killer.” The taste of flesh is equal to how well you kill. Kenichi Takanaka

An autodidact, Takanaka began his education at Gakushuin University, later leaving in order to teach himself the techniques of calligraphy, painting, and pottery.
