We are huge fans of Momo Suzuki and her line Black Crane. We came across this great interview and closet visit with the designer on Jeana Sohn’s blog. Repost below or you can read the original post here
Momo Suzuki is a Japanese born clothing designer (Her line is called Black Crane) and jewelry maker. She lives with her designer husband Alexander Yamaguchi in Los Angeles. Momo is multi talented, funny, pretty and super nice!
Momo’s closet was simple, pared down, and felt well composed. A lot of clothes and jewelry were from her and her husband’s lines. The pieces from her line are very minimal and loose fitting but the patterns are completely unique and interesting.
I was very inspired by Momo’s style and the way she decorated her space. I learned from her that you can still be stylish without having a big closet and that simplicity is a powerful statement. Everything about her was so natural and a lesson in elegant simplicity – her hair, her barely there make up and her simple jewelry. How about her beautiful apartment? I can keep going on and on..
Describe your personal style.
I would say simple. I like to play with different texture with same tone. I don’t have a particular style, just enjoying to follow my feeling.
Everyday is different.
What’s your inspiration when you design clothes and jewelry?
World around me. color gradation of petal, patterns from nature, spills on the street, can be anything.
5 things you can’t live without.
Dream, Family, Friends, Great wine, Rice!
