Last Friday I visited the new Rikyu hair salon at Sukhumvit 24 for a haircut with my favourite Yohji. After a year of long hair It just happened that I just woke up and decided to give my neck’s back some fresh air breathe. Lucky enough, HEAD & TOE , the new notion of hair and feet interpreted by Rikyu and Muzina, was exhibiting on the 2nd floor. So I sneaked in.
“Bringing hair close to the toes, two elements farthest away from each other on the human body… ” is their concept behind the exhibition. With 15 pairs of shoes designed by MUZINA, the hair stylists of Rikyu portray an image of its characters, imagining their hair, persona and style. It is a creative visual expression reflecting the character of the shoes using hair, challenging a common belief that head and toe should not be together.
Their unique works realized by two merging notions, which are “ a tool for being yourself ” by MUZINA and “ the possibility of hair ” by RIKYU, could give you a light smile on your face when you see that the shoes are smiling back to you too.
