Founded in 1998 by Yukari Suda, pas de calais is the Japanese label inspired by the French town of Calais. Bringing together the modern with tradition, its collections are infused with a nostalgic and romantic appeal, adding to the soft femininity of its designs. With a focus on using high quality fabrics such as silk and cotton, nature informs the designs, the clothing rendered in neutral tones and dyed using traditional techniques. Its selection of trousers ranges from loose-fitting drawstring styles to gently tailored cropped pieces. Relaxed and timeless, the pieces draw on the best of Japanese design and French style.
