Norwegian-Japanese design duo rubecksen yamanaka is back with their spring/summer 2007 collection ‘histoire de chaussure’ which is inspired by traditional shoe-making and brogues.

rubecksen yamanaka consists of Norwegian womenswear designer Hilde Rubecksen and Japanese knitwear designer Tomoko Yamanaka. They have been working together since leaving the Royal College of Art in London and are presenting their new collection for spring/summer 2007 during London Fashion Week.

“The collection is inspired by traditional shoe-making and brogues,” says the duo. “Fine cotton skirts are hemmed with shoe shapes and dress sleeves and underwear feature brogue detailing. Slipper-like shapes are inserted into knitted jumpers, tops and cardigans. The details on the clothes are quirky and offbeat, creating a collection of beautifully peculiar pieces. Yarns include fine cotton, linen, lurex and wool, and fabrics used are fine cotton, coated linen and fine lace in colours ranging from white, beige, pale blue, pale green and pink to black.”

rubecksen yamanaka have recently been featured in Vogue and The Telegraph Magazine in the UK and are regularly covered in Japanese magazines such as So-en and High Fashion.

This season rubecksen yamanaka are showing during London Fashion Week in the Livingstone Studio in Hampstead, Monday 18 September 2006.
