Cross National-Themed Fashion

Gramicci and SOPH. Launches a New FW22 Collection Together

— October 4, 2022 — Lifestyle
Gramicci and SOPH. work in collaboration on a new collection designed for the Fall/Winter 2022 season inspired by militaristic shapes and elevated luxury. The duo highlight themes that nod to Californian cool aesthetics and the minimalism true to Japanese design.

One of the most notable elements of the new capsule is the introduction of a fabric technique that blends Japanese hardwood charcoal known as binchō-tan, which absorbs odors and impurities. It is blended with solotex and wool to create the new fabrication. Some of the items in the new range include the oversized pullover sweater, the MA-1 zipped jacket with a plethora of pockets, Wide Ventilation pants, and more -- the capsule is now available to shop online.
