ARAMAME


ARAMAME is the result of a collaboration between photographer Nobuyoshi Araki and japanese fashion brand Mame. Designer Maiko Kawagouchi wanted a lookbook different than the usual and was inspired by “Arakiri,” a photobook splicing two of Araki’s photographs into a single image. Surpassing the confines of an ordinary fashion book, the images in the photobook were created by taping together positives from the photoshoot with photos Araki shot of peculiar little arrangements - flowers, sex toys and puppets.
