Fashion / Cyclas
Designed with Japanese sensibility, CYCLAS is a contemporary luxury women’s ready-to-wear collection that exudes relaxed, minimal modern style using fine fabrics reflecting refined elegance.
Keiko Onose, founder and creative director of CYCLAS, was previously the women’s fashion director for 13 years at United Arrows, an established multi-branded retailer in Japan. Onose went on in 2007 to found The SECRETCLOSET – a specialty store featuring international luxury designers with 5 locations in Tokyo. The retailer is known today as one of the best-kept secrets in Japanese fashion.
Simultaneous to the launch of The SECRETCLOSET, Onose started a private label which consisted of refined coats and relaxed separates. Designed for the modern accomplished woman and her multifaceted lifestyle, Onose’s RTW collection was very much sought after by fashion influencers ranging from fashion enthusiasts to editors and actresses. Leading Japanese retailers such as Mitsukoshi began to carry the collection in 2010, so did Takashimaya in 2015.
Onose’s Pre-Fall 2016 collection, represents the official launch of “CYCLAS” and its global debut in Paris in January 2016. The collection was widely praised by international journalists and buyers alike, focusing on its luxury fabrics, clean silhouettes and pure timeless elegance. In July, CYCLAS will be available exclusively in the NY at Bergdorf Goodman, worldwide at 8 doors in 6 countries, besides JAPAN.
