In 2020 early spring. Right before the city-wide pandemic lockdown, I watched the film "Lighthouse," directed by Robert Egger, at the theater. That day I swung by my friend Daiki's office and chatted with him. I was talking about the Black and white film I just watched. It was dark, turbulent, and haunting film noir. And also how excellent all the garment lighthouse keepers wear in the movie. A year after, Daiki told me that film stuck in his mind, and he was thinking about the theme of a lighthouse keeper for the fall-winter collection. I got involved in visual development, artwork for print, and textiles.
