The SAINT MICHAEL 2022-23 Autumn Winter Collection presents an innovative and thought-provoking piece that merges art with fashion. This unique sweatshirt features a striking design based on a portrait, intricately combined with cosmic prints to create a brain-like collage, symbolizing the fusion of human intellect with the vastness of the universe. Emblazoned with the brand’s name on both the front and back, it offers a bold statement of identity. Crafted to perfection, the sweatshirt boasts a sulfide-dyed and stone-washed body, meticulously engineered to achieve an authentic vintage aesthetic that suggests a decade of wear. A deliberately damaged finish enhances the piece, adding character and depth to its appearance.

Made from 100% cotton, this garment promises style, comfort, and durability. It’s designed to offer a slight stretch, providing a perfect blend of fit and flexibility. The sweatshirt is opaque, with no lining, ensuring sturdy and straightforward wearability. This collection, embodying the essence of the 22-23AW season, stands as a testament to SAINT Mxxxxxx’s commitment to innovative design and quality craftsmanship. 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.
