GOLEM

Golem

LABEL: Golem
DESIGNER: Hama (Shinsaku Maehama)
LOCATION: France
CATEGORY: Menswear/Womenswear

Using materials from flea markets, antique shops and vintage stores, Golem is a construction of oddity by France-based designer Shinsaku Maehama, who had his fashion beginnings under the tutelage of Kenzo Takada in 2002. This stint saw him creating uniforms for the Japanese Olympic team and eventually starting his own brand two years later.

Based on the folkloric creature Golem, he sees the wearing out of garments as a “phase of development” and the items from his collection are unfinished products that will continue evolving during their time of wear. Each item is limited to only ten pieces, stamping them with an exquisite quality of rarity.
