Paris-based Gareth Casey is heavily inspired by workwear, using the finest milled traditional fabrics in his collections. He is perhaps best known for his signature paper cotton fabric, an absolute necessity around the shop with its soft hand and beautifully wrinkled appearance.
Each garment is finished with a hand sewn red thread, a Casey Casey trademark and a nod to the meticulous construction and attention to detail on all of their garments.
London-based Toogood is the brainchild of sisters Faye & Erica Toogood. Faye worked as a costume designer and a pattern cutter before combining forces with her sister to focus on this line that features unique, sculptural, and genderless silhouettes inspired by workwear.
“A celebration of craftsmanship has been at the core of the brand from the outset. Each piece takes its name, inspiration and cut from a traditional trade: the ‘Metalworker’ jacket, the ‘Stonemason’ trouser, and so on.
Toogood’s clothing is instilled with the unmistakable spirit of both sisters: Faye’s preoccupation with materiality and Erica’s audacious shape-making. One a tinker, the other a tailor.”
Bergfabel designer Klaus Plank draws his inspiration from the cultural roots of his Italian heritage, specifically the traditional attire of South Tyrol in northern Italy. Plank skillfully infuses modern silhouettes and cuts into these time-honored styles, resulting in a collection that exudes an ageless quality.
Plank's relaxed and easy-going clothes are distinguished by incredible attention to detail and craftsmanship.
Giordano Lapegna launched the first Tagliovivo collection in 2013. Attracted by Italian handicraft, natural fabrics, vegetable-tanned leather, and ancient wrought iron, he decided to create a luxury collection that combined these elements.
Each piece is unique and entirely handmade using culatta leather and handmade wrought iron fastenings - most of which are repurposed from the 19th century.
Christian Peau designer Junji Koike is driven by sustainability and environmental consciousness. His bags are distinguished by exceptional leather treatments and buttery-soft finishes. He draws upon the crafting traditions of 18th century Europe, and often repurposes antique jacquards and Japanese kinsha silks from the mid-1900s in his clothing collections.
