A series of dialogues in which designer Yoshie Itabashi talks about various things with his dear friends and people he once wanted to see. The 19th guest is actress Riisa Naka, who developed a collaboration "Naughty Girl" with a candy stripper at the TOKYO Liberation Zone in Isetan Shinjuku in October 2017.
She is known as a fashion lover so much that she released her first style book "Palette" in April of the following year.
In recent years, Instagram, which feels family love, has become popular and has more than 2.6 million followers. Furthermore, in April of this year, a YouTube channel was opened, and the number of registered users has exceeded 500,000.
What is the source of her vitality that continues to expand her field of activity with actresses, models, and fashion icons?
"Fashion that shines with Riisa-chan's unique sense is
I feel fashionable like a stylist "(Itabashi)
——Naka, also known as a fashion freak, first of all, your parents' house runs a select shop.
Naka We make custom-made American casual clothes, Harley boots, leather jackets, gloves and helmets. Also, I feel like I'm just putting a little ladies' clothes that moms can wear, so my parents buy and sell what they like (laughs). It feels like they are selling what they like, so I want to wear what I like forever, and I think it would be fun to make what I want to wear.
Itabashi Riisa-chan really loves clothes. What's more, all the clothes of various genres are cute!
Naka Certainly, this is not a fixed style. I like them all.
Itabashi I have different styles every time I meet, but all the styles are very cute. Risa-chan has various drawers. I'm curious about the roots of Risa-chan's sense.
Naka I have a sense?
Itabashi Yes !!!
Naka I wonder. I think it's greedy. I like all the cute things!
Itabashi It has a high sense and punch is effective anyway. The fashion that shines with Risa-chan's unique sense feels like a stylist.
Naka I think the stylist's work seems to be fun too. Collect the latest ones from various brands and combine them with your favorite ones. Anyway, I like clothes.
——Why did you like clothes so much?
Naka I wonder if my parents are big in the clothes shop. In the old days, I also bought children's clothes. That's why I could only wear the clothes there. But when you were a kid, you wanted to wear clothes with everyone. I wanted to wear a T-shirt with an anime print, but I couldn't buy it. Now that I've become a parent, I've come to understand the desire to dress my children in good quality, but at that time I thought it would be nice to be with everyone. I think the feeling that I wanted to wear but didn't buy it has exploded now.
Itabashi I want to wear what I want to wear. Risa-chan, I think you have a sense of opening a shop.
Naka I want to do a clothes shop. But when I look at Yoshie-san, it seems to be very difficult.
Naka Isn't it difficult? Because the number of models is not odd.
Itabashi The main business is an actress. I think it's okay to sell what you like when you want, just on the EC site, without being tied to an exhibition.
Naka It's fun, isn't it? Loosely. Don't decide. I yearn for that kind of thing.
——What kind of store do you want to open?
Naka I'm an actress, and the days of just getting in a car and going to the scene continue. That's why I wanted to make "dull clothes". I want to make a dull clothing brand. Clothes that don't click, but look good.
Itabashi Overseas, there are cute "dull clothes".
Naka Overseas, everyone is wearing it. It's like a hoodie and pants. When shooting dramas and movies, it's only in the car, so that's all.
Itabashi I will change clothes soon.
Naka I want to make clothes that raise the tension even in such a case. for me.
Itabashi I think it's good! Riisa-chan has a lot of love for clothes.
Naka I've always liked clothes. I'm afraid that I'll grow up and become simpler and simpler, but even now, when I wear flashy clothes or something I like, I get excited. That's right. Wearing what you like, when you want, is the most energetic thing.
