Daniela Gregis

Virtually handmade in Italy, last of the true cottage clothing industry producers, Daniela Gregis comes from the small town of Bergamo, where every piece is made with care by humans, not machines. Quality and beauty of the fabrics and the garments goes beyond “fashion”. A collection that recalls the past, but is the here and now and meant to be worn forever.

 

Engineered Garments FWK

Designer Daiki Suzuki’s obsession with detail as well as his interest in work wear and military clothing make EG one of the most sought after labels in the world. His following is nothing short of cult like. The label gets the name from a pattern maker’s comment that his clothing appeared to be more engineering that design.

A legend.

 

Minä Perhonen

Founded by Akiro Minagawa. Influeced heavily by Scandinavian culture after his visit to Finland when he was 19, the label takes the name from minä, meaning “I” and perhonen meaning “butterfly”. Many of the textiles are his own design work manufactured in Denmark and Sweden. His illustrations can also be seen frequently in Asahi Shimbum Newspaper and the NIKKEI Newspaper.

Sofie D'Hoore

“I like to think of my work as a constant search for refinement in terms of cut, color, and execution. The integrity of the fabrics is paramount.”
