Hiroko Nakajima’s jaunty, graphic knitwear just begs to be played with.

With a passion for surrealism, op-art and the art of suprise, London-based knitwear designer Hiroko Nakajima makes a vibrant graphic statement by incorporating a fearless use of color with elements of traditional Japanese craft. Describing her garments as ‘almost like toys’, the Tokyo-born Nakajima is a mere two years removed from her studies at Central Saint Martins but already has several fashion seasons under her belt. This spring, she channels the cartoonish gaiety of Kansai Yamamoto through a careful array of viscose separates garnished with patterns and textures inspired by origami. Knee-length skirts replicate paper folds through pleating and dresses are emblazoned with arty renderings of creases and ruffles. Cropped tops echo the square shape of the kimono, which when cast in fine gauge knit, softly drape over the body. Next month, Nakajima launches her web-shop which will be stocked with 100 one-of-a-kind garments and accessories so be sure to watch her space.
