Alpha Shadows


Still a relatively young label, Salvy; was founded by ex-Issey Miyake designer Hirokazu Goh in 2013. Offering an extremely clean and exacting take on workwear, the brand unashamedly updates shapes, fabrics and details to create a highly distinctive design signature. While hardly avant garde, Salvy; does offer more challenging proportions, creating a line of significant beauty and striking silhouettes. More so than many other Japanese casual-wear lines, Salvy; bury their heritage inspiration deeply, beneath a wealth of contemporary additions and subtractions, rendering the historical lineage of their garments tricky to define. But look closer and you’ll see touches of vintage military uniforms, americana, original fabrication and enviable fine stitch-work detail.
