"Divka" is a design team established by two creators in 2011, based in Tokyo.
We are developing projects beyond fashion. We are simply thinking to create "mode" and clothes; our basic attitude is believing the power of beauty, inserting the adjective "beautiful" before the word "new" through our individual point of view. Our aim is to create what people feel as beauty by intuition that impresses upon their mind strongly to convey our thoughts.
