Fashion from the Dirt — BEAUGAN by Christopher Hancy

I wrote a 2,000 word essay published in June 2018 for MAEKAN on Christopher Hancy and his brand BEAUGAN. Christopher Hancy is uninterested in the current fashion landscape’s two extremes: fast fashion and spectacle. The Tokyo-based fashion-designer is instead choosing to create work slowly, launch seasons quietly, and leave room in his life for thinking things through. Hancy’s young brand BEAUGAN suggests looking closely at the origins of things—the beauty in the natural world and the foundation of self-identity. Read the full essay on MAEKAN.
