After a series of successful collaborations with Vetements, Anti Social Social Club, and CASETiFY, DHL Express continues to develop its relationship with fashion by recently collaborating with the emerging Japanese brand YUKI HASHIMOTO.
DHL sponsors fashion weeks around the world and supports numerous projects from upcoming young designers and brands. DHL’s vast global network enables it to connect brands and customers in major cities worldwide with speed and reliability, which has made its service a necessary and essential part of the global fashion industry. And so, at this year’s Tokyo Fashion Week, DHL teamed up with YUKI HASHIMOTO for its futuristic show.
Yuki Hashimoto previously worked for Raf Simons, Maison Margiela, and Kris Van Assche as a design assistant, earning the fashion community’s respect. On the occasion of the fashion show held in Omotesando Hills on October 14, Hashimoto presented a collection based on the structural reinterpretation of the garments: the offer combines elements of sportswear with elegant tailoring, drawing inspiration from the works of Olafur Eliasson and the motifs of his spacesuits. The exclusive collaborative pieces reworked from the official uniforms worn by DHL couriers were also unveiled for the occasion.
After the show, Hashimoto explained his partnership with DHL, “Ever since I founded my brand, I have always believed in going to the world and delivering my clothes regardless of nationality. At present, the percentage of our overseas businesses is still small, but it is increasing mainly in Asia. We will take this opportunity to look beyond Asia and explore European and American markets and continue expanding the scope of our challenge together with DHL Express. ”
DHL is committed to supporting additional emerging designers by providing them with opportunities for expansion into the international market. You can find more information on the DHL website.
