T–Michael is a bespoke tailor/ designer /artist with a conceptual approach to men’s tailoring inspired by his love of sartorial traditions and his passionate quest for a different narrative within tailoring, design and creativity, to celebrate stylistic and cultural diversities present in today's zeitgeist.
 
T-Michael is the half part of Norwegian Rain; Sartorial raincoats concealing the highest level of weather protection available, designed in the rainiest city in Europe, with hints of Japanese sensibility.
 
He has collaborated with Y. & Sons, (Yamato Ltd) a traditional kimono maker in Japan established in 1917 with over 135 stores in Japan to create the award winning T-KIMONO. The concept is to present the kimono as an everyday menswear staple in the wardrobe of men today.
 

Welcome to the creative universe of T-Michael.

Award winning rain wear from Bergen Norway. A sartorial take on extreme, waterproof outerwear inspired by Japanese sensibility and life in the rainiest city of Europe - Bergen, Norway.
"The philosophy is simple. Hard core functional and waterproof outerwear that does not compromise on stylistic preferences. The hi-tech is hidden".

Norwegian Rain's garments conceal some of the highest level of weather protection available.

Y. & SONS is Yamato's first-ever stand-alone men's kimono shop.

Yamato Co., Ltd., a company with a history going back 100 years. With the aim of achieving a new kimono culture that blends seamlessly with contemporary lifestyles and cultural trends, we are breathing new life into the kimono world while making sure to preserve the traditions and charms unique to this singularly Japanese type of dress. We hope that everyone, particularly those who feel kimono have no place in modern life, will give KIMONO try for themselves and experience the new type of lifestyle this clothing can bring. A bespoke kimono concept store that inspires everyday fashion.

Tokyo-based label URU introduced its flowing collections in 2011, designed by Masaharu Urushiyama since its inception. Focusing on menswear, with a nod towards gender-neutral designs, the label continues rolling out loose looks for Spring/Summer 2018. Informed more by comfort than trends, the label serves up neutral-hued looks offset with pops of color like pink and yellow. An assortment of loose trousers and collarless blazers are complemented by oversized tees and relaxed-cut shirts, executed in both solid tones and playful patterns. Layers range from loosely-knit cardigans and sweaters to wide trench coats, all cut in draping, lightweight fabrics. Some track-influenced gear and creased, light-wash jeans offer seasonally-appropriate contrast to the flowing, oversized suiting, with some pajama-influenced looks blurring the line between loungewear and sleepwear.

I started my career as consulting freelance Designer in 1992 until 2008 after graduation at high school of art in Treviso.
In sixteen years I’ve worked in different fields in both woman’s and men’s fashion researches, targeting my experience specially in denim  area.

GARNISON is a brand for men that transcends the three piece suit. At the heart of its collections, the work of the line emphasises the nobleness of a sophisticated body and re-examines the uniformity of the contemporary suit.
GARNISON reveals the nuances of a man in full transformation, defining new codes, whilst respecting the well established rules of a man’s wardrobe. The construction, cut, and fabrics combine industrial techniques with the excellence of a refined savoir-faire: innovative lapels that flow into the shoulder line, collars that drape, glimmering lining, shirts that revive the charm of a more sensitive man

Modern tailoring for contemporary heroes.

“Four One Nine” is the section of Nigeria’s criminal code, which deals with fraud.
The term is commonly used to describe African scam artists.
Olubiyi Thomas, Foday Dumbuya, and Daniel Olatunji, all of African descent, have taken this criminal phenomenon and created 419 an incubator for emerging creatives, and 419 Le Marais Showrooms an independent designer showroom, that are named as a tongue-in-cheek homage to the outside perceptions of the African diaspora.
419 and 419 Le Marais Showrooms are the embodiment of the spirit of DIY and the idea of finding creative solutions and ways around the current system.
The founding brands, Olubiyi Thomas, Labrum London, and Monad London, came together to form the collective as a result of the continuous challenges all faced as three young designers working to establish their individual brands removed from the support of the often institutionally-closed fashion industry.
Designers and artists looking to develop their ideas can find the support they need through the collective’s platform, which acts as a bridge to the industry by providing them with a hub for collaboration, idea and knowledge exchange, and a self-supporting movement of like-minded creatives.
