Arts & Science was founded by Sonya Park in Tokyo, Japan in 2003. Its concept is lifestyle as a whole with fashion as one important essence: To Wear, To Dwell, To Eat. Sonya believes that fashion is a "tool" in daily life rather than a "tool" for vanity. Her work is based on "genuine quality" that gains in value and beauty with age and time. The shapes are inspired by men's, vintage, work and ethnic wear. High-quality, beautifully aging materials combined with highly skilled craftwork of Japanese artisans produce this line that is truly modern luxury.
