part iii in the noodle collab series
michiko koshino x wagamama
to celebrate fashion week, we’ve teamed up with iconic fashion designer, michiko koshino.
michiko is respected by london’s fashion community as one of the industry’s original innovators. a favourite of stella mccartney, david bowie and moby to name a few. michiko has dressed not only stars, but a generation so we we’re thrilled she was willing to create a bespoke uniform specifically for our noodlelab restaurant
inspired by our shared japanese heritage, michiko’s early sketches look to traditional kimono shape and silhouette. with the final design exhibiting classic elements such as a v-neckline and waist tie. conscious of ensuring our team feel comfortable and confident while working, michiko rested on a two-piece combination of apron and shirt, carefully selecting neutral base tones of khaki and black. her personality is injected through characteristic detailing like touches of neon orange, reflective fabric and zip features. every component carefully curated, coming together to form a truly unique line
