Established by Junichi Abe in 2004.
Junichi Abe graduated in apparel design at Bunka Fashion College in Tokyo. He participated in the launch of Junya Watanabe Comme des Garçons. After five years, he left Comme des Garçons to start a new brand called ‘PPCM’ with three other designers as co-founders. After ten years, they mutually disbanded. In May 2004, Abe established own brand, ‘kolor’.
The concept of “kolor” is to producing a completed piece with the best balance in various elements (fabric, pattern, price and tendency of the time), and expressing a ‘feeling’ of the moment in each collection instead of setting a theme.
