Keep things neutral this season with new pieces from 7115 by Szeki and Black Crane, as their spring-ready collections will keep you looking chic ahead of every warm-weather occasion.
The Los Angeles-based brand Black Crane, was the brainchild of husband and wife duo Alexander Yamaguchi and Momoko Suzuki, focuses the collection on silhouettes that are streamlined for comfort. Inspired by their Japanese roots as well as the country’s culture and social constructs each piece is produced using simple fabrics in LA and utilises silkscreen printing and patterning expertise.
In it’s latest collection, Black Crane offers pieces like the Easy Jumpsuit, which lives up to its name, being a simple one piece that can be paired with leather sandals. Or opt for the breeze-catching, linen Tradi Dress and style it with a pair of Novesta Star Master Classic Trainers for a casual sunday walk.
7115 by Szeki
New York based design studio 7115 by Szeki was established in 2008 by Parsons School of Design graduate Szeki Chan. Inspired by her surroundings and a slowed down design process, 7115 creates down to earth, tactile garments that bring a considered luxury to a wearer's wardrobe. Think ethically produced, small-batch knits in pared-back shades of stone and sky blue or workwear influenced throw on shearling jackets hemmed with rustic woven detailing.
For a formal yet cool style for the office, try pairing the Canvas Pleated Trouser with the cotton Pockets Blazer and let their oversized and relaxed silhouettes compliment each other.
To celebrate the arrival of cosy new winter collections at Couverture, we invited brand consultant and digital creator Brittany Bathgate to pop by the store for a catch-up and coffee whilst she was visiting West London from her hometown of Norwich.
