Colantotte expresses "recovery" with its first collaboration between the Japanese brand doublet,which officially participated in the Paris Fashion Week, and the power of magnetics Scheduled for release sequentially from July, 2024

Colantotte Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Chuo-ku, Osaka, President: Katsumi Komatsu), the manufacturer and distributor of the magnetic health gear "Colantotte", has collaborated with the Japanese fashion brand "doublet" (Headquarters: Tokyo, Designer: Masayuki Ino), which has officially participated in the Paris Fashion Week since the fall/winter 2020 season.

In line with the theme of the Fashion Week, specifically, "THE CURE", necklaces and clothing that utilize the power of magnets which offer Colantotte’s effect of improve blood circulation and alleviate muscle stiffness were announced at the Paris men's Fashion Week for autumn and winter of 2024/2025. The collaborative products are scheduled to be released sequentially in July, 2024 by doublet Corporation. (Colantotte does not handle this product.)

Colantotte offers magnetic health gear that has been certified as medical devices that improve blood circulation and alleviate stiffness using the effect of magnetic force. Colantotte’s unique Alternating North-South Polarity Orientation (ANSPO™) allows for the magnetic effect to reach a large area, making it very effective. In addition to those effects, the good fit and design have been favorably received. The magnetic necklaces and magnetic wear are loved by many athletes and those who are troubled by stiff shoulders. Furthermore, this is expanding globally by obtaining patents domestically and abroad.

Ino is a designer who was able to recover after being supported by his friends and relatives in the past when he was hurt and was experiencing a difficult time. From this experience, He wanted to express "recovery" in this Fashion Week. We received an offer based on our experience. If we can support the expression “recovery” with the power of magnets, we can attain a collaboration between Colantotte's magnetic technology and doublet.

Colantotte Planning and Development Manager Comments

Around October last year, we received an offer from designer Ino regarding this collaboration and its announcement at the Paris Fashion Week. There was something that was communicated between our company’s desire to develop "attractive" medical devices that are designed to be distinguished from magnetic products, having the effects of improving blood flow and alleviating stiff shoulders through the power of magnets, and "recovery" which Mr. Ino wanted to express in the Paris Fashion Week. Although it was a tight schedule until the Paris Fashion week, we received an offer that they would like to work with us.

The magnetic necklace has been transformed into a unique and decorative design. The magnetic arrangements for clothing, which had been made so that they were as inconspicuous as possible until now, had been airbrush painted conversely in order to make them visible. It was a surprise and I was quite impressed that the magnetic items had been changed so much.

■ Collaborative Product Information

<Magnetic Necklace>

This combines a magnetic necklace loved by top athletes and a necklace that has a heavy chain that is often worn by the so-called punks. The rubber neck loop is magnetized 55mT at 10 mm pitches in Colantotte's unique Alternating North-South Polarity Orientation (ANSPO™) and it distributes the magnetic force over a wide area to improve circulation and relieve stiffness.

<Magnetic Wear>

Ten 130mT magnets are arranged in Colantotte’s unique Alternating North-South Polarity Orientation (ANSPO™) on the back. A series that docks authentic magnetic wear and punkish street-wear. Not only humor, but also expect improving blood circulation and alleviate muscle stiffness just by wearing the shirts.

Colantotte does not handle this product. Scheduled to be released sequentially in July, 2024 by doublet Corporation.

Comment by Mr. Ino at doublet

Reason and aim for the collaboration
Colantotte has developed a magnetic necklace that is also loved by professional athletes. I felt that the quality, product design, and company philosophy were also excellent. I thought it would be interesting to combine a magnetic necklace that is loved by players who are active in the professional world, and a necklace that seems to be worn by punks with a heavy chain that could cause shoulder stiffness. I would like you to focus on the fact that an idea that has never been seen before was born by the fusion of the image of the punks, who seem intense and aggressive, and the health goods and clothing that have the completely opposite image of being healthy.
After the Paris Fashion Week
We had a variety of reactions, including it’s a "new doublet" that continues to create new ideas while retaining the unshakable doublet character. I'm wearing it myself, but wearing Colantotte's clothing has helped me get rid of a tired feeling! I have the feeling that I’m going to work hard again today! I want to let everyone know about the benefits of magnets.
In the show, models appeared wearing zombie makeup, overlapping themselves in a difficult mental state and zombies, and portrayed that they were finally able to “recover” and return to being healthy people again.
The theme of this Fashion Week is "THE CURE".

■The “doublet” Brand

doublet is a Japanese men's brand established by Masayuki Ino in 2012.
The brand name "doublet" is derived from Lewis Carroll's "Doublets” word game. Just like the game, in which words are changed one letter at a time, the concept is to replace basic and standard items with sudden ideas, turning familiar items into "everyday wear that’s slightly off." The brand offers a complete lineup including everything from clothing to accessories.
