Founded by designer Ryota Iwai in 2015, Japanese label Auralee has made a name for itself in the years since offering impeccably-crafted clothes cut from some of the finest textiles available. Utilizing his background in knitwear and jersey development, and the extensive global resources of the brand's parent company–a textile wholesaler–Iwai builds each season around the unique characteristics of the yarns and fabrics themselves. Using this as his point of departure, he imagines clean, minimal silhouettes that are given life through sumptuous texture, careful color choice, and intricate treatments and dye processes that highlight each garment's materiality. The result is an evolving wardrobe that is as refined as it is wearable.
