Paris Fashion Week – Capsule Diaries


Our Capsule diaries went forward with MEG company and SATORU NAKAYAMA from YUKETEN. The 20-year old, LA based company has been mesmerizing us with their hand sown shoes and leather goods for quite a while, and still is with their S/S 2016 collection inspired by Native American motives. The company’s main goal is to provide products that can bring heritage, craftsmanship and forward looking designs together.

Next Stop was KIYO KAKEMIZU from BIG JOHN since 1940. The very first Japanese jeans company has been providing durable denim for more than 50 years now.
It all started during the war with the US, importing jeans through the military to Japan and selling it as second hand. The founder then went to California to Levi’s factory and learned the craft there. In 1967 Jeans were made in the US then sold in Japan. In 1971 everything was made in Japan.

The brand’s aim is durability through the use of special cotton and extensive work on details such as perfect stitches and strong pockets.

The Capsule diaries would not be over, before we made a little stop by Scandinavia with KAIBOSH EYEWEAR by HELGE FLO from Norway and ENTER BAGS by MAGNUS BJÖRKÉN from Stockholm. These brands might produce different things but both speak Scandinavian Simplicity. Many products rely heavily on practicality, comfort and modern clean cuts/frames.
