Title: The Vinculum

Designer and Model: David Kazuto Sakumoto

Photoshoot Photographer: Floyd Palser

Merchandise Photographer: Jey Velez

Photoshoot Location: The Peninsula Chicago

Synopsis: “In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.” Coco Chanel 

This runway spread redefines the concept of a suit through texture. By applying connecting bands of pearls and stones that operate as a single entity forming a vinculum, the ensemble forms intricate moments redefining what a suit really is. The process consists of over 15,000 individual beaded embroidery stitched by hand.
