Bag by 2014 CFDA Fashion fund finalist @simonmillerusa. Simon Miller produces the entire women’s collection in the USA in collaboration with organic mills to reduce their impact and conserve water, in addition to working with independently run family mills and artisans in France and Japan. The brand focuses heavily on incorporating OZONE technology in their production, as well as employing ceramic stones in the denim wash processes. Simon Miller donates excess product on a yearly basis to local organisations.
SIMON MILLER was founded on the principles of Japanese fabrication and modern American craftsmanship. The collection of authentic denim, modern ready-to-wear and leather accessories focuses on textural fabrics and advanced wash treatments, offering a sophisticated, natural ease. The brand draws inspiration from the landscapes of the American Southwest, modernism and the natural outdoors, creating collections that are timeless, crafted, and lived-in. The SIMON MILLER collection is developed between the brand’s New York showroom and Los Angeles headquarter. Both spaces are an expression of the brand’s passion for raw material – juxtaposing industrial concrete with warm aged leathers, wood and faded indigos. In 2014, the SIMON MILLER brand was selected as a finalist for the CFDA Vogue Fasion Fund.
The Bonsai bag is the brand’s definitive cult bag. Simon Miller’s Creative Directors Daniel Corrigan and Chelsea Hansford were inspired by the American Southwest when creating it.
