On May 30th, Zara will be launching a special collection called VIEW.S.
VIEW.S is a new collaborative project between leading art/design schools and Zara. Unique collections created by the brightest young talent, opening the gateway to a new wave of influences and ideas.
VIEW.S will be starting off from Japan by collaborating with Bunka Gakuen University, the design school in Tokyo. Bunka Gakuen University, located in the heart of Shinjuku, Tokyo, has cultivated a unique educational philosophy as pioneers in the study of fashion and lifestyle/creative fields. The university seeks to develop an internationally oriented fashion studies programme based on three keywords: globalization, innovation, and creativity.
Out of all of the interesting students that signed up for the project, Scott James Marsh, Margaux Gibert, Viktoria-Helena Binger , Arashi Yunome and Yuya Kudo, have been the finalists of VIEW.S from Bunka. They have designed a collection in close collaboration with Zara Man that will be available only at Roppongi Pop-Up Shop-Online from 30th of May. From June 7th, this special collection will spread out to 3 stores, Shinjuku, Nagoya and Shinsaibashisuji and online worldwide at zara.com
This collection comprises a total of 15 articles and includes outerwear, shirts and trousers accompanied by T-shirt, all of which will come in a broad range of sizes, depending on the garment.
VIEW.S from Bunka’s imagery has been specially created by Alessio Bolzoni, photographer based in London.
