Black & red spine coat

Mild-Red’s influence comes from art, sculpture, architecture and the intellectual fashion aesthetic of Japanese designers Issey Miyake and Yohji Yamamoto. Designer, Donna Tulloch, has an instinctive way with cloth, enhancing its properties and piecing materials to create complex three-dimensional shapes. Mild-Red was stocked at Galerie Paris in Yokohama in Japan where, in 2008, Donna Tulloch had an exhibition as part of the Triennial of Contemporary Art. She collaborated with the New Zealand sculptor Graham Bennett who created flexible, articulate spiny sculptures to accompany and be worn with and on her outfits.
