  • "ryo koizumi" gilet beige


    For our first Spring 2022 Artist Series we brought Ryo Koizumi, a calligraphy artist we first collaborated with in 2020, back into the studio for a long awaited second collaboration.


    Ryo Koizumi, a former gardener who transitioned into becoming an artist, started as an active calligraphy artist in 2016, and in 2019 came out with his now iconic “Enso” series, a series of artworks that displayed intricate continuous calligraphy strokes in the shape of a circle.


    We at Sillage fell in love with Ryo’s art in 2020, and it’s safe to say we’ve fallen for him and his art all over again.


    Our 2nd collection with him will consist of our big pocket shirt silhouette, our gilet silhouette, and the fabric we sourced for the collection is a beautiful high density cotton twill with a bounce finish. The fabric is thin, but because it has a twill weave it still creates bulging shapes on the wearer while also being easy to maintain, resistant to wrinkles or tears, with a long-lasting luxuriously durable feel, making it the perfect material for the summer.


    Similar to how our last collection prominently displayed Ryo’s art printed on our shirts, our new collection will again display his intricately designed calligraphy circles, but with a more minimal approach - each big pocket shirt/gilet in the series will feature Ryo Koizumi’s incredibly detailed artwork in columns of three on the front, going along both the left and right sides of each piece. The backs of the big pocket shirts/gilets will also feature a column of three calligraphy circles as well.


    The Gilet is a new silhouette we first debuted in our winter 21' collection as the perfect piece to help you achieve a beautiful layered look in your outfits. The silhouette is wide and boxy, and the jacket features five large shell buttons going up the middle, a collarless neckline, and 2 large flap pockets in the front with hidden side pockets as well, making sure that the wearer is able to carry all of their personal belongings without compromising comfort.


    Ready to ship in 2 to 3 business days.
