Opaque: a Fashion Video

Earlier this summer we had the opportunity to invest in upcoming talent Daria Kobayashi Ritch, a fashion photographer and now videographer, as she produced an experimental film. The resulting work, Opaque, is a stylish and dreamy meditation on identity and place. The short film is currently on exclusive with ultra-cool fashion magazine Nylon – check out the 3 1/2 minute visual poem on their site here.

We’re looking forward to working with Daria on a shoot for local indie clothing brand Kaban+, an Akogare Trading Co collaboration that will signal the start of a new, more hands-on incubator of creative talent. Daria’s work has been featured in Urban Outfitters’ online, WWD, i-D, and Teeth, among others. See more of Daria’s work here.
