“defining wabi sabi in physical terms is like explaining the taste of a piece of chocolate by its shape and color.” – wong & hirano
emma bradstreet, photographer – yuvali theis
emma bradstreet dolazi iz londona, a diplomirala je 2014. modni dizajn na kingston univerzitetu. njen dreamspace, njen stil je minimalistički i zasnovan na japanskoj estetici. kolekcija sa kojom je diplomirala zove se: “wabi-sabi“… osvojile su me na prvi pogled fotografije njenih modela prepune nežne svetlosti koju je znalački zabeležilo senzibilno fotografsko oko koje ima yivali theis. srećan joj ulazak u svet modnih kreatora. njeni počeci obećavaju.

“inspired by the japanese aesthetic ‘wabi sabi’, emma bradstreet’s graduate collection celebrates the beauty of things imperfect, impermanent and incomplete.
the word ‘wabi’ connotes rustic simplicity, freshness, quietness and an understated elegance. it can refer to quirks and uniqueness arising from the construction process. the word ‘sabi’ by contrast relates to beauty or serenity that comes with age, when an object’s wear and tear is evidenced and its impermanence exposed.
inspired by cracks, crevices and all other marks that time and weather leave behind,
‘imperfect, impermanent, incomplete’ is embodied by asymmetric shapes, rough textures, subtle hues and natural materials.
strongly influenced by menswear, the collection features a range of timeless and classic silhouettes, focusing on the reinvention of traditional pieces through unconventional fabric choices and a tendency to flaunt the unwritten rules of tailoring. an asymmetric lapel or an angled shirt placket, each working detail leads to a new interpretation of a classic tailored garment.
using a combination of clever cutting, contemporary fabrication and minimalist design, this collection incorporates british tradition, skill and quality where good design is about enduring quality and understated detail.”
