On Apr 19, a show was held for the debut of “1 piu 1 uguale 3 ERIKA,” a collaboration line between actress Erika Sawajiri and brand “1 piu 1 uguale 3.”

Tomohiro Ozawa, AKM founder and founding member of wjk, is the designer of 1 piu 1 uguale 3. The brand presented its 2013-14 AW collection at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week TOKYO held last March.

The collaboration line with Sawajiri was launched in commemoration of the 1st anniversary since the opening of the 1 piu 1 uguale 3 Roppongi Hills store.

Under the design concept of 1 piu 1 uguale 3 introducing words such as “supreme” and “ultimate,” Sawajiri selected fabrics and contributed to the design process.

The items, which include parkas, long skirts, T-shirts, jeans and more, are casual yet dressy in taste. A variety of designs using sweats such as a hooded parka combining different materials, racing style pants and body conscious top are available. Bottoms mix patchworks of quilting, checks and leather. Lame was introduced on some of the lining also.

T-shirts are priced at 15,000 yen, jeans up to 60,000 yen and parkas up to 80,000 yen. The designs are adorned with the brand logo as well as Sawajiri’s lucky number “3.”

The collection will be introduced as costumes for the cast in the Fuji TV drama series “First Class” starring Sawajiri.
