Noir Kei Ninomiya

Kei Ninomiya is one of many designers who boast a tenure at the avant-garde powerhouse of Comme des Garçons. Ninomiya worked as a pattern cutter under Rei Kawakubo at the renowned house before starting his own line in 2012. His focus, as the name of the label suggests, is on the colour black. Ninomiya evolves the simple, intense shade through the use of intricate, thoughtful pattern cutting as well as the blending of textiles to create textural contrast across his collections.
