Black Crane SS18
Being together for almost a lifetime, Momo and Alex find a perfect balance in combining their passion for architecture, fashion, and design. Black Crane started in 2008 as a luxe t-shirt brand created by Alex but soon after their interests joined forces.
With Alexander’s knowledge of silkscreen printing and patterning and Momo’s background in enviromental art and architecture, both disciplines find their strengths in their geometric silhouettes and uniquely hand-dyed fabrics. Momo got inspired. She fell the need to create shapes of her own. Black Crane is a reflection of Momo’s personal style. She discovered a personal need of beautiful, lightly draped creations made with unique fabrics.’Creating for every age, being comfortable in what you wear’ is her life motto.
Drawing inspiration from her love for Italian architect Carlo Scarpa, a true prodigy of details and his ability to reflect the intrinsic beauty of joints and connection, she design each collection keeping the whole design very simple, but always placing settle details, specially on the threshold for different fabrics. Her direction once again clear in her SS18 presentation. Functional and comfortable pieces elevated through the use of architectural shapes and fabric textures.
