BROOKLYN MUSEUM, founder, Kazuhisa Kusugaya.
Born in Kanda in 1948.
I was raised in a downtown where there were always some artisan family children in my class, and my uncle Kazuhisa was one of the bag craftsmen.
It's no exaggeration to say that having grown up by seeing the scene that seriously faces manufacturing has brought great influence to Kazuhisa later.
Generations who felt the rich American culture that had flowed in after the war and landed one after another, and enjoyed the fascination of the times.
Television changes from monochrome to color.
Music is folk songs and electric guitar sounds. The Beatles whirlwind occurred worldwide, and it had a great influence on Japan.
A group that enthusiasts tens of thousands of young people. It was nothing but Kazuhisa's culture shock, and I became so absorbed in the days that I didn't listen to guitar sounds.
The more I listened, the more I heard that great sounds such as Ventures, Beach Boys, and even Elvis Presley came from America.
Waku, who began to adore American culture, was also interested in the culture of clothes, and among them, "Ivy fashion" was shocked.
