Happy Valentine’s Day ! Valentine’s Day is celebrated here and around the world; it’s the first opportunity the retail industry has in any new year to truly promote an event, and for some people, it’s a very important day ! As this is our first full trading year here at Genki Clothing Company, we decided to join in with the celebration !
We recently came back from a trip to Japan with some bespoke designed calligraphy Kanji characters which we intend to print and launch as part of a new range of t-shirts for Spring/Summer 2018. One of these, Ai, the Japanese Kanji word for love has been printed on long sleeve t-shirts in black,white,red and pink, just in time for Valentine’s Day !
Since we launched last year, we’ve noticed a massive increase in interest in all things Japanese, whether it’s sushi bars being introduced to leading supermarkets or the interest being generated from the forthcoming 2019 Rugby World Cup and 2020 Olympics, both taking place in Japan. The country, the people, the language, the food, the history and the culture is attracting an enormous amount of attention.
Here at Genki Clothing, we are very proud of the progress we’ve made in such a short time of trading. Everything we create, now and in the future, will be authentic and original; our new Kanji characters being a classic case in point. We love our new Ai design, it’s the first of many to come !
Happy Valentine’s Day !!
