|PARIS, Jul 2, 2002 (Updated Jul 1, 2009) FW/ — The tradition of good tailoring, the refinement in the finishings declined by Masatomo on items of the male wardrobe which ally high elegance with a casual feel, have been the signature of this designer’s brand since it has started, nearly two decades ago.
Founded in 1985 by Rynshu as Maji- Masatomo, the label debuted on the Tokyo catwalk in 1986 and continued to show there until 1992, which co-incidentally was also the year the Maji-Masatomo became Masatomo, Inc.
With the change of name came the change of venue. Rynshu started showing in Paris that same year unveiling his menswear collections season after season for the past two decades at the City of Light.
Another change is coming in 2010. Following the Japanese tradition of changing your name when you reach a turning point in your life, Rynshy will change the brand name from MASATOMO to RYNSHU beginning Fall 2010/Winter 2011 collection.
