Soomin Ha reports from Milan on Roen

Dear Shaded Viewers,

THe theme : Real Life – The Light Side.

Think 1970’s resorts in Miami crowded with men loving life’s little pleasures. Roen has always been rooted in a rock spirit and life lived in chaos. More than anyone Hiromu Takahara, the designer of Roen, loves the skull because for him it represents the beginning of life and not the end. He feels that we have to wear something that expresses ourselves.


The ‘day in the life’ of a rockstar was how the presentation was organized. The idea being to show us what a normal day in their studio was like.
