Nine Lives started on a dark night in Tokyo; it lives there and in Los Angeles. The brand creators, Kotaro Sato and Ian Segal, have already lived a number of different lives, and this is one they have consciously chosen of the nine they hope to be granted. In this life they indulge their passion for textiles, design and the construction and wearing of beautiful garments. They source custom fabrics from around the world, with a manufacturing home base in Japan that sets the standard of quality. In all, Nine Lives is a symphony of furiously dedicated craftsmen, all playing something weird and feral.
