FACETASM was founded by Japanese designer Hiromichi Ochiai in 2007.The brand name ”FACETASM” is a neologism of the word “facet” which refers to one side of something many-sided. A side of one object and the back of that same object might have a totally different meaning. For us this means we don’t want to stick to any rules. We always aim for a new face, and take pride from our own set challenge. Our goal is to create clothes that move people’s hearts, and allow those people to have fun.
