MR

Hong Kong Tatler - - Style | Fashion -

Mr, whose real name is Masakatsu Iwamoto, cre­ates anime-in­spired pieces and is a for­mer pro­tégé of renowned artist Takashi Mu­rakami. For the Gucci Gar­den Room, Mr trans­formed the space into what can only be de­scribed as cu­rated chaos. “Michele gave me cre­ative carte blanche to do what­ever I wanted with the room,” says Mr. “I was ex­cited at the fact that I could break and tear down the art­works as I pleased.” The re­sult of all this was a derelict, al­most dystopian room teem­ing with in­sects, plants and flow­ers. And, of course, his trade­mark Lolita-es­que char­ac­ters took cen­tre stage.

“ALESSAN­DRO MICHELE AND I HAVE A SIM­I­LAR AP­PRE­CI­A­TION FOR THINGS THAT ARE NOT CON­VEN­TION­ALLY BEAU­TI­FUL. WHEN IT COMES TO JA­PANESE CUL­TURE, WE’RE BOTH DRAWN TO THE STREET CUL­TURE, THE MORE ‘ BAD BOY’ TASTE, IF YOU WILL”
