COLLECTION / Emma Bradstreet's Wabi Sabi







Emma Bradstreet  created a collection inspired by the Japanese aesthetic ‘Wabi Sabi’.
 Her work reaffirms and celebrates the beauty of things in 
the realm of  imperfection, impermanence and incompleteness.
I guess most designers respect the basic aesthetic of 
a tailored piece however it culls them to rediscover hence
the reinvention and creation of notions of novelty.
Emma features menswear coats and tailored
jackets but in its genes lie a multitude of understated 
detailing and rule-bending techniques. 
The asymmetric lapel and box silhouette plus
the crop coats are perfect examples of this idea.
