VI E DIT Brand Concept
Breaking down the term VI E DIT, “VIE” translates to “life” in French, while “EDIT” signifies “editing” in English. Combining these two words, the brand name “VI E DIT” signifies creating clothes that edit people’s lives. The brand’s first collection includes shirts, double-breasted jackets, belted slacks and trainers. In addition. On the launch of his brand, Yuki said: “I’m genuinely excited about the challenge of being a designer, handling production management while being an influencer in this ‘new D2C brand.’ My aim is to participate in Tokyo Collection and expand sales overseas. I want VI E DIT’s clothes, not just myself, to be known by many people, and I strive to maintain a continuous pursuit of this goal.”
VI E DIT Launch Celebration Pop-Up Store
The inaugural “VI E DIT POPUP STORE” will showcase newly released items available directly from ZOZOTOWN. Additionally, the pop-up store will offer the limited ZIP HOODIE item. Collaborative items with Kamakura-based Japanese tea select shop “CHABAKKA” and “THE FLAVOR DESIGN,” providing personalized scents, will also be available exclusively at the pop-up store.
