(capsule): United Bamboo Le Bac

January 19, 2010 BY CAPSULESNEWS

United Bamboo designers Miko Aoki and Thuy Pham are taking inspiration from their school uniform-wearing days and bringing us a new concept line called Le Bac. The men’s collection is set at a lower price point, but still made in Japan. All of the classic coats, trousers, shirts, cardigans, and sweaters will retail for about half of the standard men’s collection without sacrificing quality. The designers wanted to create comfortable, interchangeable pieces to simplify the art of dressing- similar to a school uniform.
