■ 1. Catch up
Hello everyone. This is Takahiro Sato, aka Tak, the designer. This week, I am busy preparing for tomorrow's photo shoot, as well as attending my son's PTA meeting and my father's cancer treatment.
Finally, the sample sewing of the new product came in! All of them are beautifully made, and I admired them with the quintessential skill of Sankei Crea from Soma, Fukushima Prefecture. As I said, they are all good, but I must mention the work jackets for Japanese outdoor play clothes.
I designed the lining with Japanese patterns and red stitching as accents, and while it follows the atmosphere of KUDEN's previous clothes, it has become a new line of clothes that can be used in everyday life.
We would like to take this opportunity to introduce "Western" clothing with a playful Japanese flavor, in addition to our traditional Japanese designs. We will report on this information in the next week after the photo shoot.
Also, the outlet we introduced last week will start today at the time of the newsletter distribution! After sewing, KUDEN's concierges (former sewing artisans) who strictly check the quality of our products inspect them, and we will continue to offer products that are not A quality, but are still good enough to wear as outlets.
This is an Ethical trial that does not mass-produce and mass-dispose. For the first time, one Kimono gown and one Juban shirt will appear as outlet items. We also checked the warehouse and found one royal blue Samurai Mode Shirt! The Shirt has now been redesigned to Shirt II, but this is the first Shirt I.
The difference from II is that the silhouette is more boxy than II. It is a vivid blue color that can be utilized as a shirt jacket. Please be sure to have the last I on hand. Outlet items are offered at a special price upon acceptance of the reason for the discount. No claims, no returns, please.
First come, first served.
(Between you and us, if you have a special 1,000 yen coupon via CAMPFIRE, you can use it together, so check it out!)
In addition, to take advantage of the current hot summer weather, we are offering for the first time a "limited time price": a 10% discount for a limited time on some INSTOCK items that ship in 3 business days. After the period, the price will be taken back to the regular price. This time, the target items include short-sleeved shirts.
Please check this out as well.
So, we are busy for the photo shoot in Tokyo tomorrow. Next week I will be able to show you some shots from the shoot and introduce the crowdfunding period for the new clothes.
See you next week.
