With Black Crane, sustainable fashion's hempish aesthetic is back in the limelight. And we love it.
Consumers, press and retailers have urged the sustainable fashion movement to part from their signature hempish aesthetic for years – but in the last few seasons we have seen new designers exploring sustainability bringing new meanings to “shapeless” linen and hemp with elegant raw-cut, minimal designs. One of these (that manage to get an especially desirable outcome) is Black Crane, a joint venture of Japanese-rooted designer Alexander Yamaguchi and environmental architect/artist Momoko Suzuki. The duo has a conceptual approach to design heavily influenced by ancient Japanese culture and all production (including the weaving of the fabrics) takes place locally in Los Angeles. Have a look at their latest collection (styled with Margiela shoes) here.
