Taichi Murakami Cordovan Silver Spiral Buckle Belt
Details Murakami began his journey while working at an artisanal boutique in Japan, it was here that he stumbled upon the works of Carol Christian Poell, M.a+, and other artisanal labels. After attending fashion school in Tokyo, Murakami was given the opportunity to study pattern making in Italy, through a scholarship program. At his point in time, he wrote a letter to Maurizio Amadei and was consequently taken under his wing in 2009 when he worked for the label as a pattern maker. Here he polished his craft and learned new ways of pattern designing once alien to him. By 2012, Murakami had left M.a+ and moved back to Japan to start his own artisanal, sportswear-inspired label. His use of intricate details and knowledge of pattern design allows each piece to be unique in its construction, resulting in variations of different patterns for the same piece. This belt is done a sturdy cordovan leather hide with contrast stitching and custom metal buckle.
