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.

Leh 2020 Spring And Summer “THE POP STAR” NO.1 デザイナーは日本を拠点に一年の三分の一を海外で過ごす。 インド、アフリカ、ヨーロッパ、東欧など 未開の地へ単身向かい、そこで得た感性、人との出会いや繋がり、偶然的なセッション、人種や国籍、年齢関係なく、世界各国で自らの経験の中から得たそのエキスをLehのクリエーションに使用する。どうしても囚われてしまう日本での先入観や関係性を抜きにした旅先での出会いは感性によるものが大きい為、意気投合し共に仕事をすることも多い。 Leh2020SSの写真と動画は、ロシアのカメラマン・映像作家のVitali Akimovが撮影した。 デザイナーとはインドにて出会い意気投合。 彼の撮る写真の技法やスタイルを気に入り、今回Leh2020SSの撮影の為に日本へ呼び寄せた。 初の日本での撮影作品となる。 photo @vitali_akimov video @savvym8s hair @kuniokohzaki model @niina217p @keitatawara @leh__official #leh #2020ss
