Japanese samurais provide the unlikely inspiration for Danish womenswear brand Bitte Kai Rand.
The warriors’ armour has had an influence on everything from colours to shapes and structures, albeit with a feminine touch. The resulting collecting focuses heavily on layers and patches of contrasting dark, dusty and metallic tones, as well as textural effects, all punctuated with tassels, ropes and braided ribbons as accessories and belts.
Wholesale prices range from £37 for trousers to £149 for wool cashmere outerwear. Bitte Kai Rand will exhibit at Scoop International.
