Factotum 2010-11 A/W Collection
The 10th Japan Fashion Week in Tokyo is in progress, and TokyoFashion.com’s contributors have been reporting back on the runway shows going on all over town. On Tuesday March 23rd, Japanese label Factotum presented their 2010-2011 Autumn/Winter collection at the National Stadium venue.
Launched in 2004, Factotum is a Japanese menswear label known for its military and working man influenced styling. The brand’s creator Koji Udo was born in 1971, and is a graduate of Tokyo Mode Gakuen. After college, he worked for Beams Ltd., studied in London, and – with Manabu Yaegashi and Tatsuya Togo – launched the Lounge Lizard brand before creating Factotum.
The brand’s workwear aesthetic, slim silhouettes, and military cut have gained it a following among young Japanese men, as well as putting Factotum on the radar of international fans of Japanese streetwear.
