New Brand: Children of Discordance
This week we welcome Tokyo’s own, Children of Discordance to Wish ATL. Children of Discordance was established by Hideaki Shikama in 2011. The up-cycled pieces that he’s become famous for are inspired by recollections of fashion and music from the 90s to the present. Shikama has updated and up-cycled items from his personal collection of archives and vintage pieces, sourced worldwide. His usage of vintage materials and deadstock approaches sustainability in a way that doesn’t feel forced. The environment isn’t his sole concern; focusing on respect for craftsmen, creators, and producers while designing ethically. This has been achieved by working beyond the concept of fair trade for production that creates the sophisticated one off products expressing the attitude of “DISCORDANCE”.
