Ground Y, a brand that proposes new possibilities in fashion with a "genderless" and "ageless" style, while incorporating diverse elements synchronized with its concept through the filter of Yohji Yamamoto, will launch its new collection for the fall / winter 2022 season on July 22nd, 2022 (Fri.).

The "SOUUN-TAKEDA", is a fusion of the oriental art of "calligraphy" and fashion "SOUDO", born out of "DOU-TAO-". A philosophy of self-expression that exposes the core of a person (light and dark, truth and false, conflicting emotions, duality) and appeals to the essence of human beings.
The concept of this season is to question the essence of "wearing clothes" and "dressing".

The act of "changing clothes" itself, is a process of changing one's mind, which brings about a change in one's posture, manners, and appearance.
We propose a collection that appeals to the essence of human nature, where a mindset that travels through time and space flows into the body and eventually becomes flesh and blood.

The key visuals for this collection features Yumi Wakatsuki, an actress active in popular TV dramas and movies, and Hajime Shacho, a leading video creator in Japan. The 175,000 m2 garden Sankeien was opened to the public on May 1st, 1906 (Meiji 39) by industrialist Sankei Hara, and is home to 10 important cultural properties and 3 buildings designated as tangible cultural properties by the City of Yokohama.
