LESS IS MORE
Making people beautiful.
If we leave just the words that are truly necessary, it means that "making people beautiful" is all that we strive for, the least amount of work for the maximum effect possible for our customers. Of course this means we work to make the outer appearance beautiful, but we also address the inner beauty of the person, because we believe that both sides must work to refine the other. From the visible aspects of a person like conduct, bearing and behavior, to what cannot be seen, like philosophy, concept and values, we have resolved to become people ready to come face to face with our customers.
Originally "beauty" in Japan was seen as an awareness of moderation, and as the power of "refined luxury" within a simple lifestyle. At Less Is More we are on a quest not for a Western standard of beauty but for a standard of beauty that represents our pride in being Japanese.
We inform our customers of the 'criteria for beauty', through popularization we impress a lot of people, which in turn 'makes people happy and beautiful, and this consequently changes the world'.
Our hope as LIM is to be the kind of company that can accomplish that.
