MICHAIL GKINIS AOYAMA, which produces creative items that brighten the individuality of the wearer, such as the "Wearable Art Stole" that can be worn in a multiple ways, has launched a semi-custom project for "Wearable Art" that can be worn as both interior decoration and fashion.

Wearable art" that can be made from art paintings by Greek artists.

"Art to Wear" is a one-of-a-kind piece of clothing that can be worn as a fashion item.

"Art to Wear" will be available for semi-order, hand-painted on Japanese fabrics that Michail Gkinis loves as a canvas. The bold yet delicate brush strokes of the paintings on a single piece of fabric can be enjoyed as art painting or used as a fabric for a stole or a dress.

[Pattern 1] For those who want to enjoy the art paintings as interior decoration.

You can purchase your choice of one-of-a-kind hand-painted art paintings (expected retail price: 39,000 yen and up). The large artwork measuring approximately 130cm x 150cm, which incorporates the artist's sensibility in color and design, which changes from time to time, will completely change the atmosphere of a room just by hanging it on a simple white wall. It can be hung on a table or sofa, used as an accessory for curtains, or used as a part of your interior design.

We can make a scarf or a piece of clothing from your favorite artwork (1 to 3 pieces can be made from a single painting). You can discuss the color combination, length, etc. with the designer Michail Gkinis himself, and make a semi-custom order according to your individuality. Whether you are making an item for an anniversary as a couple, sharing artwork with friends, or enjoying a link-up coordination, we will propose an item that meets your needs.

We can create 1 to 3 items from a single painting, so you can share them with your family and friends.

<About the system>

When making semi-custom clothing or scarves, the artwork will be discounted 10% from the selling price.

The cost of the item to be made will be added separately to the cost of the artwork, and the final price will vary depending on the pattern and number of items to be made. In the future, we plan to offer more items such as variations of each item, T-shirts for children, and pet accessories. Currently, cotton is the only material used, but we plan to expand to wool, leather, artificial leather, and other materials.
