ILY2 X Tomihiro Kono
ILY2 is thrilled to release nine original fancy wig works by Tomihiro Kono, made for ILY2
Wig maker and hairstylist Tomihiro Kono has been exploring the relationship between identity, transformation, and hair for 20 years. The Japanese talent began his career as a classically trained hairstylist in Harajuku, Japan, and has brought an innovative eye to the art form. Kono’s offbeat aesthetic has attracted collaborators in the fashion world such as Junya Watanabe and Come des Garçons. In the past few years, Kono has honed in on the craft of wigs, shearing and sculpting the portfolio of pieces now featured in his newly released second book, Personas 111 - The Art of Wig Making.
