Now featured in Shibuya Cultural Center is an exhibition of clothes that were "semi-decomposed" from the French Revolution to present day, by free-modelist Akiyoshi Hasegaw.

Akiyoshi is a graduate of Esmod Tokyo, and teaches at both Nagoya Boston Museum of Art and Keio University.

Based on the theme of "feeling," Akiyoshi has created an exhibit that viewers can, "see, touch, and try on."

I’m drifting from the surface of clothes, and want to tell the other side. I want to inspire enthusiastic students and maniacs to come.
— Akiyoshi Hasegaw

The "semi-decomposed" exhibit is composed of men's clothing such as suits, military wear, work clothes, but trial samples were also produced for women.

…we have a small favor to ask. Men Of Thrift's independent, fashion journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as $1, you can support Men Of Thrift – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
