women's
女性が本質的に持つ美しさを引き出すため、
”時間と調和”をコンセプトに繊細で緊張感のある服を創りつづける。

men's
“時間と経過”をコンセプトとし、実験的なアプローチとリアリズムが同居する、
上質なワークウエアを提案する。

The clothes should not only be all about trends but individuality.
suzuki’s approach to designing is to cherish
every moment during the life of a garment ‐ particularly finding a new side of it,
even if its totally worn out.
beauty must be found in anything,
dirty objects like torn out flowers or abandoned buildings should be seen as beautiful.
this appreciation give clothes a life and warmness of a human touch.
The concept of men's line-up is "time and elapse".
It proposes high quality work clothes combining experimental approach and realism.
