We love a good designer collaboration – the limited run and exclusivity make it so covetable that sometimes, it gets sold at double its original retail price on resale websites. While some collabs, like H&M x Moschino two years ago, are targeted at the younger market, there are a handful specifically made for the working woman (eg Charles & Keith x Cecilie Bahnsen).
Cue Tod’s T Factory’s partnership with Japanese designer Mame Kurogouchi. This collab marks the brand’s third partnership with designers (after Alessandro Dell’Acqua and Alber Elbaz). The 26-piece collection, which includes ready-to-wear, shoes and accessories, combines Italian craftsmanship and Japanese aesthetics.
Kurogouchi is a Tokyo-based designer who started her eponymous label in 2010. Her brand, which specialises in bold and timeless womenswear, has been showcased at Paris’ Centre Pompidou Metz and Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo.
