Throughout the launch of unclip, Murahama was heavily involved across all aspects of the brand, including the selection of materials, colors and sizes, based on the concept of creating items that are not bound to fashion norms, but rather, items that help the wearer feel at ease just by wearing them. Through AnyMind Group, Murahama was able to realise this concept by tapping on platforms such as AnyFactory and AnyShop and support for the planning, designing and production of her brand and apparel line.

■Thoughts from Haruka Murahama I have decided to launch my own brand, unclip.
unclip is inspired by the way film photos are clipped and hung when it is being developed. It’s not a fad, but more like developing a film photograph slowly and carefully – and that is our approach in making clothes.
I have an inferiority complex about my body shape and frame, and I pay a lot of attention to it when I choose my own clothes.
I have wide hips, my shoulders are broad, my inseam is low, and so on. Whenever I think a dress is cute and I buy it online, there is a chance that I’ll try it and it won’t fit me.
Not just in terms of clothing shape, but also in terms of material – I don’t like fabric that easily soaks up sweat or thin fabric, because I’m a sweaty person.
I believe that everyone has an inferiority complex, and it’s something that we have to live with and deal with for a long time. I want to wear the clothes I like without stressing – on days when I want to dress up, on days when I just want to head out for a little while, and even in my daily life. That’s what inspired me to start this brand.
The clothes are natural and loose in size, and are suitable for men as well. I want to make clothing that can be worn by people who experience the same inferiority complex that I do.
I hope to make a special piece for each and every one of you!
