Yuta Hosokawa’s up-and-coming label READYMADE is produced in Japan using old military tents, each piece is crafted by hand. Incorporating original lettering from the fabrics previous life. Each piece can take upwards of a few months to create, but it’s exactly the time it takes that defines the brand’s high standards and price.
Los Angeles-based designer GREG LAUREN repurposes scrapped fabrics to create new garments. This makes him one of our most environmentally friendly brands, never leaving anything to waste. A patchwork-like aesthetic informs the collection, as scraps are used in unique ways. For example, a kimono jacket incorporates parts of a blanket, while wide-leg trousers are made of patchwork denim or pieces of tents.
