In January 2020, acclaimed “READYMADE” designer Yuta Hosokawa and Los Angeles-based multi-visual artist Cali Thornhill DeWitt launched the brand “SAINT MICHAEL,” a fusion of their creative minds, showcasing graphic prints that embody a genuine vintage essence. Their collaborative efforts have birthed a line of apparel that looks authentically aged and feels luxuriously comfortable.

Each piece is meticulously crafted, featuring flat seams executed with a specialized sewing machine and high-quality thread for a seamless, comfortable fit. The attention to detail is paramount, with elements like the round body, a handmade process, and a unique dry finish achieved through a drum-type large tumbler all contributing to the authentic vintage appearance.

The garments are designed to evolve with wear; their surfaces become fluffier and the prints develop a characteristic crack over time, enhancing the vintage appeal the more they are worn. Despite this, the innovative printing and dyeing techniques ensure the longevity of the fabric and designs, preventing fading and deterioration.

“SAINT MICHAEL” isn’t just about clothing; it’s an experience embedding the distinct styles and philosophies of Yuta Hosokawa and Cali Thornhill DeWitt. Wearing these items is not merely a fashion statement but a journey in building a deeper connection with a piece that gains character and sentiment with each wear.
