Behind The Scenes: Akira Naka

Behind The Scenes: Akira Naka


Akira Naka’s clothing is best known for its Japanese and deep European influences, largely gathered while studying and working in Antwerp. Akira Naka combines a number of sharply tailored edges and cuts with a great deal of texture and detail in high waisted skirts and trousers, rubbered tops, and simplified casual wear.

Akira designs to elevate the woman — not just the clothing she's wearing. Each piece is thoroughly wear-tested by women to ensure the highest quality fit.


"When I saw the collection, I immediately had a connection to it. The clean lines, structure and thoughtfulness around the designs were intentional and I knew we had to have the collection in the store. Rarely do I get emotional about a new collection, but hearing Akira speak about designing for today’s woman brought me to tears."  — Sherri McMullen
