Shakuhachi is an Australian brand that I was introduced to when I visited the 5th House PR showrooms a few weeks ago. What with Australia being a season ahead, this is the AW13 collection there, but our SS13 collection - hard to get your head round I know but the collection is altered slightly depending on where it is dropping.
Shakuhachi are offering a bit of everything I love for SS13. Sheer chiffon, floating leather, heavy embellishment, all with a sporty twist. The colour palette of gold, black and white with small injections of colour is my thing too; swear I was made to own all of this collection.
The Shakuhachi collection is a little Wang-esque feel to it but won't set you back as much, although the price tags aren't cheap; the collection falls in that grey area between high street and designer.
This collection won't drop until early next year so, for now, head over to their website to see Shakuhachi's current collection (their SS13 and our AW12).
