• LEXUS NEW TAKUMI PROJECT 2017

LEXUSが「地方創生」をテーマに、日本のモノづくりをサポートするプロジェクト。作ったのは、ジュエリーとして身につける江戸切子「KIRIKO JEWELLERY」。京都のテーラー、東京の石留め職人、金属メーカーに力を借り、「江戸切子の中で選ばれるジュエリーではなく、ジュエリーの中で選ばれる江戸切子」を目指しました。

Undeniably stylish and unquestionably luxurious, these exquisite cufflinks were conceived under the ‘Lexus New Takumi Project 2017’ – a program which aims to promote Japanese manufacturing and craftsmanship through the concept of ‘regional revitalisation’.
From the onset, Toru was adamant that a new line of ‘Kiriko Jewellery’ offer more than just wearable Edokiriko. With the assistance of a Tokyo-based stone setter, a tailor from Kyoto and a renown metalworker, he drew upon decades of shared experience to fabricate a truly singular piece of jewellery.
The result is a conscious embodiment of concept and design which effortlessly blends an elegance of form with Horiguchi Kiriko‘s signature splendour.
