SATOSHI KAWAMOTO X LE MONT SAINT MICHEL
Satoshi Kawamoto has always had a long standing fascination with styles of yesteryear, especially work wear. It was a typical Sunday afternoon, when Kawamoto laid his eyes on his first vintage Le Mont St Michel jacket at a vintage store somewhere in New York city. He describes that moment as discovery of a diamond in the rough. From that day onwards, Kawamoto was enchanted with Le Mont St Michel not just as an iconic fashion brand but also for their philosophy and rich history.
His passion compelled him to approach Alexandre Milan, the head designer and CEO of Le Mont St Michel. With Kawamoto’s artisanal expertise in plants and green styling, a common ground was instantly found with Milan. Le Mont St Michel’s has its roots in work wear; with their 1913 jacket being famous as the best jacket worn by Breton farmers. Adding the fact that Kawamoto, on any given day, whether in Tokyo, Milano or New York is dressed in work wear handling plants at his chain stores; Green Fingers. Therefore a collaboration between both parties was a natural one.
