Chiai has often said that, being japanese, he doesn’t feel taboos and constraints when it comes to designing clothes. He says he is free—that is, free from social and cultural expectations about how to dress, free from rules about what clothing is, free from conventional cuts, fabrics, gender classifications, and so on. Through this freedom, Chiai believes he is able to express multifaceted beauty in his designs. In addition, the everyday style in Tokyo reflects a precise attention to detail. For instance, foreign visitors to Japan often notice people carrying small square and towels or handkerchiefs. These are used for blotting the face on hot days, or for drying hands after washing hem, even if hand dryers are available. This seems like a small, ordinary detail, and no one thinks twice about carrying one. But in fact, it is a kind of small, personal luxury in public bathrooms, or? public transportation, and in other public places to have a good-quality, soft hand towel to use. High-end products, such as lmabari towels, made in Japan with the finest cotton and craftsmanship, or towels made by luxury fashion brands are common, but the towel doesn’t have to be expensive to feel luxurious. It is this appreciation of and demand for small, personal luxuries of high quality that is a characteristic that
many people in Tokyo, and indeed the rest of Japan, share. In terms of fashion, Japanese designers are extremely attuned to this demand, and so there is an emphasis on “made in Japan” quality and painstaking craftsmanship and construction.
