Sage Nation, delivered by Sa ge Toda-Nation delivers a strong visual offering with their Nostos Algos capsule collection lookbook.
The collection explores the dislocation between its creators contrasting cultures, having been born in Japan and growing up in England. Sage's ‘satogaeri’ which roughly translates to my returning home and the rediscovery of his homeland serves as the focal point of the collections conception.
From top to bottom there is a close focus on fabrication through traditional materials, alongside garment constructions and design methods. By focusing on these three core areas, a balance is struck and in turn offers up a collection with familiar elements, realised in completely unique ways.
Maintaining this cultural proximity, materials used in the collections construction are sourced from both the UK and Japan, before being built in London.
