Since Kōki, made her fashion debut some three years ago, she’s made a rapid ascent straight to the top – in the short span of time, she walked for Chanel’s Cruise 2020 show, appeared in multiple Coach campaigns, and became the first Japanese ambassador of Bulgari. The model was also recently named Estée Lauder’s global face and counts Louis Vuitton as one of the houses that she frequently collaborates with. Having dabbled in songwriting, the multi-talented youngest daughter of Japanese entertainment industry icons, Takuya Kimura and Shizuka Kudo, is now set to make her film debut in Ushikubi Mura, by filmmaker and Ju-On creator, Takashi Shimizu.

Congratulations on your upcoming movie debut! Is there anything you can tell us about the film, Ushikubi Mura, and your role in it?

Thank you so much! It has truly been such an amazing and unforgettable experience. I am forever grateful to the director and the whole team because they have taught me and supported me so much, and have given me such a precious treasure. I cannot say much in detail but there is a surprise to the role!

With so many fashion collaborators, how would you describe your personal style? Are there fashion and beauty items that have become your go-tos?

I would describe my fashion style as casual-elegant. I always love to include a dash of elegance in my fashion looks. I love jackets – I think they are such an important piece in your wardrobe that can easily make your look more sophisticated and complete. I usually combine my jacket with denim and a T-shirt. My go-to beauty item is my Estée Lauder night serum. This has truly been a game-changer for me. My skin condition has improved a lot and I love the texture of the product.
