Red Ear: A Shore Thing

Our made-in-Japan collection takes a trip to the shore for SS23, taking inspiration from organic natural forms, fishermen, repaired ceramics, and coastal erosion.

Irreverent and almost cerebral, our made-in-Japan collections always look to unlikely sources for inspiration. Unsurprising then that the origins for the new SS23 collection come from two unexpected places: coastal erosion and ceramic forms.

How that translates to the clothes is both abstract and apparent. Considered and contemporary, the new collection updates a fisherman-inspired wardrobe with modern, experimental approach – the ethos that underlines all of Red Ear’s made-in-Japan pieces.

There are traditional workwear shapes in lightweight, loosely woven fabrics, woodblock-esque knits, relaxed, slubbed silk fabrics, denim with a clay-like effect (a nod to the ceramic inspiration), garment-dyed sweatpants, and so on.
