As a part of the third installment of Spring 2019 Collection, California Based Denim Label – J Brand collaborated with Tokyo-born Kozaburo Akasaka who has designed a special capsule of reconstructed, sustainable denim styles. Akasaka is a fashion graduate from prestigious Saint Martins College of Art and was under the training of famous designer Thom Browne. In 2017, he also won LVMH Special Prize Prix.
The collection features 5 different pieces- Iris, Mallory, Sapphire, Jolene, and Penny Lane, named after Akasaka’s favorite characters from movies, books, and novels. Akasaka reworked J BRAND’s archival deadstock material, adding seams, contrast top-stitching, and exposed zippers to this super high-rise wide-leg silhouette. Other distinct design elements such as frays, tears, exaggerated thread detail, and architectural shapes make each piece unique. The collection is priced from $428 to $498 and will be available globally by the end of March 2019 on the J Brand e-store and at Barneys New York and Lane Crawford.
