Trending Shoe Brand GIDDY UP Debuts
GIDDY UP launched through DMM.com in 2017. The name derived from the term used to make a horse start moving or go faster.
The concept of the brand, which designs shoes using 3D printers, is to create a new form of communication between the earth and people through shoes.
By pursuing lighter weight rather than focusing on gravity, the highly transparent sole gives the body a floating feeling and a pleasant change in the way we feel gravity. Redesigning the sole―a persons contact point with the earth―and making a difference in human values and views of life is the ultimate reason of design.
The brand was announced at the Paris Fashion Week in 2018. Designer and director Mikio Sakabe and designer Yusuke Hotchi make use of new technologies to challenge themselves and create fashionable pieces.

A solo exhibition by Ricardo Gonzalez, an artist whose signature phrase is “It’s a living” will be held. “It’s a living” not only describes Ricardo Gonzalez, but also his philosophy. Ricardo’s beautiful and simple writings are presented in a variety of forms, including giant wall murals, global brand logos and advertisements, and stickers that can often be found on the street.
As in the title of this exhibition “Writing is Painting”, Ricardo draws words to create an image. These words, drawn from a perspective unique to Ricardo who is from Mexico and currently resides in Brooklyn, stem from an objective observation of our relationship with society. There are various interpretations depending on how his work is perceived, but everyone will find their own understanding and feelings, whether they are questions or connections, between theirselves and the work. During the exhibition period, his work will also be on display at the Hotel Art Fair “Art Osaka”.Read More →
WOUTERS & HENDRIX limited edition
Specially designed for the release of the movie “Girl”
“Girl” is a movie about a transgender girl who aspires to become a ballerina. Her passion for ballet, the earnest struggles she encounters as she faces adolescence and the miraculous strength of this innocent girl and her family are captured in an original way. WOUTERS & HENDRIX’s limited edition was inspired from this work.
Her mentality and circumstances, as well as entwined situations (Noué in French) is expressed with a motif of a swaying chain and buttons. Buttons are also one of the signature motifs of WOUTERS & HENDRIX. The last essence added is an “X”. It represents “genderless”, “surprise”, “an unspecified something” and “kiss (bise)”.

Orders for CAROLINA BUCCI will be taken at H.P.FRANCE BIJOUX Osaka from Wednesday, June 19 to Monday, June 24. In addition to the signature friendship bracelet from the Woven collection, various lineups and color variations will be available for order during the event.
CAROLINA BUCCI’s signature “Woven” friendship bracelets are beautifully woven with a 18K gold chain and silk cord using a weaving machine that has supported the city of Florentine’s textile industry for centuries. Over 10 different color cords with matching lucky charms are available and include a lucky message from Carolina.
The “Florentine” collection that has sublimed into modern luxury using Florentine Finish, a traditional gold finishing technique that has been used in Florence for over 100 years.
The gold finish—completed by the precise hand work of craftsmen—exudes an organdy-like appearance when it receives light. The jewelry line inherits Carolina Bucci’s aesthetics “passing on tradition while being comfortable and modern”.
The “Caro” collection was named after the designer’s childhood nickname. Bangles made with yellow, pink, white and black colored silver chains and colorful lurex yarn wrapped around a loop are flexible, easy to slip on the wrist, and gorgeously made like fine jewelry.
