Ryota Sakai has had a long love affair with clothing. After opening a vintage store in Tokyo in 2002, he eventually went on to establish his line O.C Style in 2009. The brand is heavily inspired by vintage clothing and takes particular inspiration from the 1950′s. After establishing O.C Style, Ryota’s entrepreneurial spirit and love of fashion led him to the U.S. where he continues to expand the brand. As of now, he calls both Tokyo and Long Beach home.
