Atsuko Kudo featured at this week’s Met Gala in New York when French model, Constance Jablonski wore our Restricted Playsuit over a Wes Gordon gown.
Constance appeared in most of the best dressed lists from the evening – and who are we to argue with that!
Both the playsuit and our studded knuckle gloves feature in the special Punk collection specifically curated by Moda Operandi who sponsored this year’s Gala.
Both items are of course available from the new Atsuko Kudo shop.
British super model Erin O’Connor wears a variety of key Atsuko Kudo pieces for Flair magazine (Germany).
Erin O’Connor has been described by Karl Lagerfeld as “one of the best models in the world” and has walked for almost every major fashion house.
Erin has also been photographed by Steven Klein, Steven Meisel, Nick Knight and Mario Testino amongst many others. However, she is noted not only for her amazing modelling but also for her writing on fashion. She also co-founded the award winning All Walks Beyond the Catwalk – a ground breaking initiative promoting diverse beauty ideals who’s aims we at Atsuko Kudo fully support.

Lady Gaga has just released a variety of footage and images from her curtailed Born This Way tour.
Here are some shots of an Atsuko Kudo look designed specifically for the motor bike section of the show. We hope Gaga gets better soon after the hip operation which has prevented her completing the tour.
Pre-empting this year’s fascination with all things ‘punk’ the look was heavily studded and strapped.
We’ll have some news on the upcoming punk exhibition at New York’s Met Museum soon.
Liberty Ross appears in Love Magazine’s ‘Clean’ issue wearing nothing more than Atsuko Kudo lingerie!
Shot by Sølve Sunsbø and styled by Katie Grand, Liberty makes a very strong visual statement. A statement which was picked up by many other magazines after her highly publicised split with film director Rupert Sanders. This, after his encounter with Twilight ingénue Kristen Stewart made headlines worldwide.
Many commentators chose to interpret Liberty’s stunning photo set as a fitting response. All we can say is that Atsuko Kudo clothing is designed for women who wish to look beautiful, feminine and strong.
Liberty appears to have all of those attributes and many more besides.
The current ‘alphabetical’ issue of i-D magazine features an amazing Charlotte Stockdale styled shoot starring latest ‘super’ Karmen Pedaru.
Atsuko Kudo was asked to create couture pieces to accompany items from Chanel and Fendi.
The gloves and stockings were designed and produced to the very specific requirements of this very innovative shoot photographed by Daniel Sannwald.
i-D online also produced animated gif versions for additional party fun!
Atsuko Kudo features in today’s ES magazine London Fashion Week special edition with this great shot of our Jessica body with 2D flower and diamante applique.

We all need it!

Brad Pitt recently wore this Atsuko Kudo eyepatch in a handsome Steven Klein shoot for Interview magazine.
Working entirely in black and white Mr Klein captures Hollywood’s leading man in a look which is compelling in it’s simplicity and which ‘tops and tails’ the shoot with a reverse shot showing exactly how the AK eyepatch should be worn.

In line with AK’s successful appearance in Selfridges’ London the piece features an interview with Atsuko and some very interesting comments from writer Karen Dacre on the direction of AK’s approach to design, female sexuality and of course how she feels about bringing those aspects together to create the Atsuko Kudo aesthetic we know and love.
Here’s the link to the piece and if you’re in London – pick up a copy today – we are on the cover!
One correction to the piece is that the flower hat pictured is available from SHOWstudio
