Recently featured in our emerging Japanese fashion brands feature, Leh has now delivered its latest Spring/Summer 2020 collection. Titled “The Pop Star,” the range is an expression of designer Takuya Mikami’s understanding of the concept of a heightened figure that draws a darker inspiration from poet Charles Bukowski.

Unveiled via an arresting lookbook, the collection continues Leh’s signature production ties to India that celebrates forgotten old world techniques marked quality hand craftsmanship. Raw hems, hand stitching and purposeful layering all serve to convey an avenue of styling tied to indigenous aesthetic liberties. Other defining details include reflective elements, luxurious silk threading and vintage bakelite and glass buttons.

Some standout pieces include outerwear crafted from ties and a matching skirt carrying the same repurposed theme, phrase stitched long coat and silver accessories built on Mikami’s time learning silversmithing in Bali.

Check out the lookbook above and head over to Leh’s website to learn more about the SS20 collection.

For more contemporary fashion, bentgablenits recently launched its sustainable upcycled Continuous collection.
