SO MINT! ‘Give Me A Hand?’ Kigen Kamijima

Central Saint Martins, London '20

SO MINT! is a series of posts on fresh graduates in fashion, jewellery and design from around the world. Handpicked by Current Obsession.

Every piece in my collection is designed to highlight particular utilities of the body: for example, the hand as a notepad, the lap as a table and fingers as ear plugs. The objects only become functional when worn on the body as jewellery, suggesting the way we use the body as a prop. Pieces in my collection remind us that our smallest, most unconscious daily gestures possess functionalities, and that the possibilities of the body are forgotten. It is not simply what we wear that defines us, but how we wear it.
