Antipasto is a small dish prepared at the beginning of an Italian cuisine.
Just as how antipasto enlightens ones to have great expectations for the main dish to come, “Being an inspiration to fashion,” ANTIPAST is named to pursue and perform in the same manner.
ANTIPAST also signifies another aspect of the brand role in fashion, which is “ANTI-PAST.” The brand name itself has been designed to represent our beliefs and ideas toward the production of our original items which inspires creativity and arouses excitements to the unprecedented value in wearing.

+ANTIPAST

Such additional inspirations from +ANTIPAST shall realize significant varieties of new flavors, colors and textures to further enlighten ones’ desire for fashion.
