INTRODUCING: HUMAN MADE

leave a comment »

Today we shine a little light on contemporary Japanese outfitter: HUMAN MADE. Since its inception in mid 2010, the label turned out to be a medium for NIGO to express his affinity towards American vintage clothing, while keeping it relevant with a modernist approach through the use of distinct aesthetics and emphasis on elaborate details. The collection tastefully applies patchwork and embroidery graphics to a choice selection of re-imagined workwear silhouettes and vintage pieces.

HUMAN MADE is available now at: CONCRETE.

CONCRETE PRESENTS: HAVERSACK

leave a comment »

New this season at CONCRETE is Haversack, a creation of Japanese designer Koji Norihide and was founded in Japan in 1998. Haversack is readily available in Japan, and has a flagship store in Tokyo but is currently only stocked in a handful of places in Europe.

The name Haversack is taken from the bag used by the American army made of linen and wool as a substitute for leather. It was recognised for its strength and durability. The concept of the label is to be a contemporary collection which places great emphasis on detail that always works back to the military themes at its heart.

Through a seriously taken design process that pays complete attention to the cut of the garment, the result is a strong modern silhouette. Natural fabrics like linen and cotton are used to add a richer texture and give an aged look and feel to the garment.

Available now at CONCRETE is the Haversack Attire collection, with a more directional feel, these pieces are recognisable for their clean silhouette and hand finish.
