Takaaki Shimase, the designer of the brand tac: tac, who graduated from ESMOD PARIS at the top of his class, started its activities in 2014.
In 2017, the brand was nominated as a candidate for the Mainichi Fashion Grand Prix Newcomer Award.
The origin of the brand’s name is time.
Time is something that all people share but are different from each other, and it is the spirit of wanting to propose ready-to-wear clothing that symbolically speaks to you.
Suggesting a unique balance and atmosphere with cutting and the textiles were chosen with a free sensibility that is not bound by rules, the designer strategically designed basic styles that are typical of “tac:tac” while incorporating the latest trends.
Although it is a designer brand, tac:tac wants to be “moderately stimulating”, anonymous and symbolic, sharing its desire with people to be strongly felt and resonate with the senses.
