ASHIO DOZAN GHOST TOWN | P.A.M x CARHARTT WIP F/W 15
Cult label P.A.M. and Carhartt WIP collaborative on yet another season, this time creating a world within a world.
The F/W 15 women’s capsule collection, titled ‘Ashio Dozan’, is not only a collection but also a place: “it is a town where ghosts, destruction, nature and beauty all meet, it’s not a clash rather they sit in silent harmony. Post apocalyptic feelings ooze from every broken window and collapsed factory roof. Once an industrious copper mine but now 100 years after environmental poisoning it’s abandoned and has become a ghost town. The natural world has reclaimed the territory, vines covering buildings, rain rots the wood so in the end what we see is a beautiful world in a slow transition. With only small hints that humans were once there”.
Utilitarian styling of the earth-inspired prints is intertwined with the natural elements of the outdoors.
