Introducing Mr Minagawa, Japanese fashion designer and founder of the brand Mina-Perhonen. For A/W10 he created a unique selection of fabric prints for us. Our head of design Emma Mawston says “His style is simple yet beautiful, working patterns with intricate line work in coloured pencil, watercolour washes and ink. He was so inspired working with us he wrote poems to accompany his beautiful prints.” I have to say this pretty verse “Sleeping Rose” which is inspired by the tana lawn fabric of the same name is my favourite. I’ll leave you with his lines…
While hearing your breathing sleeping beside me,
I am thinking back on today’s daylight.
”It would be good to rain tomorrow.” I tell the wind.
