Parco Co., Ltd.
[SkiiMa Gallery] Utamaro x Kyoto Seika University “Wash! Paint!”
At the gallery in the co-working space “SkiiMa” on the 4th floor of Shinsaibashi PARCO operated by Parco Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Shibuya-ku, Tokyo), we explore “dirt” as a design based on Utamaro soap’s knowledge of “laundry”. We will hold an exhibition to present the research results of Kyoto Seika University.

Accidentally spilled food and drink. Soil and mud that happened to splash. Instantly rubbed cosmetics.
Can we enjoy “Paint!”
Students from Kyoto Seika University, who study fashion, categorized and explored color / texture / adhesion / shape / layout based on the knowledge of washing = “Wash!” cultivated over many years of Utamaro soap.
Please look forward to the announcement of research results that will lead to the discovery of new designs.
The fashion brand POTTO and the sporken words project produced an apron as a fashion item that allows you to enjoy even the dirt that adheres to this announcement. We will also hold an installation and workshop by two brands.
