A nude figure is bare, unclothed and free from ostentation. Tokyo-based designer Masahiko Maruyama introduced “NUDE:MM” in 1996 with the vision of presenting avant garde clothing in its purest yet most dramatic form. The label combines a minimalist color palette and a seemingly laid-back aesthetic with artisanal tailoring and high quality fabrics for a distinctive silhouette that’s part gothic simplicity and part dramatic futurism.
