Clay Dye: fashion & nature

YWGS: “Green is good medicine”

Clay Dye is a natural dyeing technique launched by YWGS: GoodNeighbors Shirts in collaboration with Yard Works, both from Japan. A new label with a nature-inspired philosophy behind it. Close to the soil, and one with the soil.

In search of a reconnection to nature and overcoming a dualistic viewpoint that sees us separate from it, we found this project perfectly on point. Indeed, humans are nature, and this project celebrates it.

About Japanese style

We are Japanese design lovers! In particular, we appreciate the idea of quintessential simpleness, careful attention to every single detail, the atemporal design and sense of comfort. Also, we value that delicate expression that doesn’t need to scream to be seen. Of course, we know we are not alone, as there are many other estimators of the Japanese style. So, it’s for you that we selected some valuable garments from Japan. (Contact us to know more).

YWGS: a new nature-inspired brand

YWGS is the project we introduce today: a collaboration label, GoodNeighbors Shirts with Yard Works.

Kei Amano, a planting expert based in Fuefuki City, Yamanashi Prefecture. Yard Works is his landscape and architecture studio.
Akira Aoki, passionate about music and art, is a fashion designer based in Tokyo. GoodNeighbors Shirt is his brand, a 7-day shirt project. In other words, its style concept is about shirts you can wear comfortably every day.

Therefore, the project joins a planting professional and a shirt professional. A borderless thought, functionality and urbanity from the garden to the city. Specifically, it is a new workwear line that unites gardening and urban style with a comfortable, timeless and genderless aesthetic #formodernhumans

YWGS conveys the concept of “GREEN IS GOOD MEDICINE.” And the nature imprint gets revealed in the clay dye technique.

Clay Dye

Clay Dye: What is it?

Clay Dye is a special dyeing technique: garments are immersed in clay by using high-quality clay from the parents’ farmer home – in Gunma prefecture for 400 years. Akira Aoki majored in dyeing and weaving design at art University. Also, the designer himself dyes shirts by hand.

This tactile experience makes nice shirts with just the right amount of unevenness and beautiful colours. Ultimately, caring for nature and being nature is one thing.

Delicate erosion: Meagratia SS24

Inspiration from Rakuten Fashion Week

In search of inspiration for the SS24 season, from the Rakuten Fashion Week, which just took place in Tokyo, we share the Meagratia collection film “Delicate erosion.”

Meagratia is a Japanese brand, and Takafumi Sekine is the designer. What do we expect from Tokyo? Creativity, unconventional design, uniqueness.

On a side note, we still divide collections into seasons for pure convention. In other words, it’s just to give a sense of order. However, we usually select meaningful pieces with a timeless aesthetic. Good design and quality last forever. Also, we tend to pick many seasonless garments: pieces that, with a layering style, work almost throughout the year.

We love the Meagratia brand and find his work interesting for its subtle sense of style and meticulous detailing. Also, the designer’s passionate research of vintage pieces made modern through skilled design work represents a labour of love for fashion. Definitely not for the mass market; it’s for those who appreciate uniqueness.

Delicate erosion – Meagratia SS24 collection film

His unconventional, personal language emerges in his collection films, season after season. And so, we invite you to see “Delicate erosion” Meagratia SS24 collection film here:

As you can see, getting some inspiration from the Meagratia SS24 collection film, the colour palette is delicate but intense. Fabrics are textured or printed but easy to wear. And the design elements are so unique they beautifully stand out. Another great point is the genderless approach, which makes the collection contemporary and transversal. Indeed, all of these elements come together to create a sensory experience that evokes feelings of elegance, sophistication, and timeless beauty.

Meagratia’s designs are the perfect style choice #formodernhumans
Always keep in mind that you don’t need more; you need only the right pieces. Which means less but much better quality.

Get in touch with us wherever you are! We will show you only the most unique pieces worth buying.

The Fringe Maxi Shirt

Genderless fashion #formodernhumans

Today we introduce The Fringe Maxi Shirt by Meagratia.

The image of this long shirt, with fringed trimming decoration, is unique and elegant. But it’s easy to wear. Since the ribbon is tone-on-tone, it features a refined monochrome pattern, which adds beautiful detailing while being delicate.

The designer creates pieces with a soul: genderless, timeless, and wearable. In fact, Meagratia’s style is special and detailed but never excessive. And this vision perfectly reflects in his capsule collection. Indeed, the Meagratia collection shows a clear idea of fashion without making too many pieces, which would be pointless from a sustainable viewpoint. Plus an excellent artisanal quality.

Meagratia brings new inspiration

A focus on unique contemporary fashion for you

Meagratia brings new inspiration for the Spring/ Summer season.

We have just received the new collection from Japan! And we are so much satisfied with the unique designs the clothes show. And the high quality, too.

Unique fashion and sustainability

The Spring/ Summer 23 collection offers special garments that will make you stand out but, at the same time, are wearable too. The image is modern, the lines are new, and the colours and details are beautifully assembled. Also, the quality fabrics and the accurate tailoring combine tradition and innovation. Most importantly, the brand is not mass-produced. And that is what we need for sustainable fashion.

Enjoy the Meagratia Spring/ Summer 2023 collection from Rakuten Fashion Week Tokyo!

Meagratia inspiration: our SS23 selection

A belted wide-leg khaki pants reveal a slanted front button fastening. Also, it features a button along the ankle, which allows wearing the trousers in two different ways, changing the silhouette. Then, a splendid knit vest combining three colours – white, green and light blue – with a tassel trimming along the hemline. And a white cotton maxi shirt, or shirt dress, decorated with tassels along the back and wrist. Plus a beige net poncho to enrich your outfits.

One last note: who said genderless fashion is dead? Indeed, we happened to read this comment during the Milano Fashion Week 23. This statement had a raise-eyebrows effect on us. Sadly, it is not uncommon to see people who work in the fashion field, who even write about fashion, having a limited vision of style. C’mon! It is not Alessandro Michele who invented genderless!

Saying genderless fashion is dead means having no idea of what genderless is. Genderless means freedom! Specifically, it’s the freedom to pick the clothes you like from whichever category they belong to.

So, Meagratia brings new inspiration for the Spring/ Summer season #formodernhumans
But we can’t wait to create some stylish (genderless) outfits for you!
