Sachiko Okada and Aaron Sharif are the design duo that makes up Blaak, both are graduates of London’s Central St. Martins School of Art & Design and they started Blaak in 1998 as a contemplation on the emotions around the colour black. The pair made an immediate impact, selling the label’s first collection to Browns, followed by Liberty, Maria Luisa and Barneys, before Okada and Sharif graduated in 1999. Playing with juxtaposition of elements and silhouettes, they developed a style that is truly modern yet believable - style that does not isolate but enhances the wearer. Blaak is three-time winner of the New Generation Award, the Elle Style Young Designer of the Year Award 2002, and the Vidal Sassoon Cutting Edge Talent Award 2001. Since SS07 Blaak has concentrated on menswear, and now shows during Paris Men’s Fashion week.
Head Porter was established in 1988 as a joint venture effort between the famous Japanese luggage company, Yoshida and Japanese style icon Hiroshi Fujiwara. They produce the collection incorporating style and craftsmanship synonymous with Japanese fashion emphasizing on functionality and quality.
