Woolmark Company Signed two-season partnership with Japanese Label

Woolmark Signed two-season partnership with Japanese Fashion Label

The partnership between the Woolmark Company and FACETASM (Japanese fashion label) has marked the beginning of a long-standing relationship. The Company has signed a two-season contract for making its Autumn/Winter 18/19 and Spring/Summer 19 wool-rich offerings for the upcoming show at Paris Men’s Collection.

The Woolmark Company will work closely with FACETASM’s design team. The design team has already viewed the Woolmark Company’s sourcing guide the Wool Lab, drawing on the most innovative fabrics and yarns for the upcoming collections and connecting the design team with the wool supply chain. Both the collections will be Woolmark-certified.

FACETASM founder/designer Hiromichi Ochiai travelled to Australia and said, “It was such a precious experience for me to actually talk to farmers and experience how Merino wool is produced. I believe Merino wool is an essential ingredient for the brand to move onto the next step in its creation and I think this collaboration with the Woolmark Company is a great opportunity for the brand to expand even more.”

Its unique creations are deeply rooted in Tokyo’s edgy street culture, quickly garnering global praise. Wool is the integral part of the label’s collections since 2007. It will feature the fibre versatility and its position as the premier ingredient in luxury apparel.

The Woolmark Company, MD, Stuart McCullough said, “Hiromichi Ochiai will be our first global wool ambassador from Japan, further expanding Merino wool’s legacy beyond traditional tailoring.” He further added, “This partnership deepens the relationship between the Australian wool industry and Japan’s fashion industry, with FACETASM taking the two to a global audience via its extensive range of stockists.”
