Individual Sentiments F/W09

Yoko Ito is the driving force behind Individual Sentiments. Her work is clearly the product of a focused presence with clear vision and a solid understanding of the human form. There is a warmth and softness to Ito's work that cannot be defined in simple terms of masculinity or femininity. Rarely does one encounter such strength and delicacy as intrinsic attributes so perfectly balanced in the fashion m├ętier. Her work is truly a reflection of the beauty, intensity and vitality that is the human spirit. Individual Sentiments defies gender lines and evokes more abstract notions, such as power in the form of water, to help delineate the concepts behind the line. Individual Sentiments is a true "cottage industry" artisan line producing limited quantities of the highest quality. We are grateful and humbled to have the opportunity to introduce her line to the U.S. as the first stockist in the country.

Three Layer Knit Coat:

Fine hairs, such as angora, alpaca and cashmere, are presented here in the form of various knits, layered in a way that anchors itself as outerwear.

High Collar Angora Jacket:

Angora/Wool blend jacket with extended cotton jersey sleeves. The extended sleeve "lining" has thumb holes which can be worn out as a functioning glove.

Angora Stole:

Angora/wool stole with cotton lining cut in a slightly obtuse triangular pattern is double layered with buttons to play with the dimensions and draping. Large enough to be used as a blanket, this is a substantial piece that is sure to keep you warm in style.
