- WOMEN’S SUMMER 2013
Christian Peau is a Japanese fashion house whose design is understood to bridge the gap between modern avant-garde and classical artisan-based fashion. Unlike many of the cutting edge Japanese designers that have emerged from the last 10 years, Christian Peau’s design is much more European in nature. Its influence lies in the traditional European artisans from the early 1800s who were understood to be masters in their trades. Drawing from traditional shoemaking, and leather master craftsmen, Christian Peau has reinvented the antiquarian avant-garde in a modern, and beautiful manner.
