Christian Peau


Independent Fashion Designers, San Francisco, CA

Christian Peau is a Japanese fashion house based in Kobe, Japan whose design is understood to bridge the gap between avant-garde and classical artisan-based fashion. Unlike many of the cutting edge Japanese designers that have emerged in recent years,  Christian Peau’s design has a much more European aesthetic. Its influence lies in the tradition of European artisans from the early 1800’s who were understood to be masters in their trades. Drawing from traditional shoe making and leather craftsmanship, Christian Peau has reinvented the antiquarian avant-garde in a modern, beautiful manner.
