Lumen et Umbra, Spring Summer 2014 Collection

October 25, 2013

This season he made ‘Jacquard Camouflage’ (Cotton 51% Linen 49%), ‘Net’ (Linen 83% Cotton 17%), and ‘Japanese Denim’ (Cotton 100%). The denim absorbs a  rich indigo color, held up by a rigid texture. Issei comments, “Typical indigo dyeing consist of dyeing 21 times, but our jeans are dyed 28 times from a Japanese veteran in the trade.” The ‘Paper’ (100%), is the type which is traditionally used under the ‘Kimono’, because the properties of the material take in sweat from body, simultaneously cooling the body. With treatments, he uses an airbrush (dye) process which is applied in to each garment individually by hand. With prints this season, Lumen et Umbra works with an Italian Mill to apply a printing process instead of dye. The designer is also working with a Fabric company in England a apply a traditional wax coating process to waterproof the some of the pieces. Visit the official website.
