about STYLED by Adam Howe
Stylist and designer Adam Howe gives STYLED a Japanese focus this week, as he relocates to the atmospheric Hakone region.
With the volcanic crater-lake of Lake Ashi at its centre, the landscape of Hakone bubbles with hot springs and offers views of the mythical Mt. Fuji.
"I discovered Hakone at a friend’s wedding ceremony, 8 years ago”, says Adam. “Jet lagged, I awoke at 5am to witness a misty Mount Fuji, lake and beach. Totally seduced by the light and atmosphere I just had to shoot here. 8 years later, with the help of Martin [Holtkamp, the photographer] & oki-ni, I did."
Adam Howe has worked as a stylist for the past 20 years, as a Contributing Fashion Editor for i-D, The Face, Sleaze Nation and Arena Homme Plus. Adam has also worked as Chief Costume Designer on Elaine Constantine’s new film Northern Soul, while his work as a menswear designer recently saw him open the flagship store Work Not Work in Marunouchi, Tokyo.
