“We started out with making custom pieces for friends and eventually started doing pieces for iconic people in the fashion industry,” the designers share. Soon, they started getting recognition from several fashion magazines in the country. For the season and early 2018, they are expanding with a prêt-à-porter range with a collection that tells a story on the in-between points of two parallel universes clashing, each carefully handcrafted item speaking for itself. The pieces are something that’s rarely seen in regular ready-to-wear—elevating and ultimately changing the game and staying authentic to their quirky artisanal style.
When asked on the mark they hope to leave in fashion, Oki and Guardian were crystal on their perspective. “We hope that we can leave an impact where people are not afraid to express their creativity in their own unique way, even if it means looking like a fool. Sometimes that can help you to bring forward your voice to the table for people to actually listen and observe what you have to offer.”
The vision is clear with Ha.Mu: it’s not just clothes but an emblem of inspiration for young creatives who are reluctant to fully express themselves. Breaking the barriers of gender norms, Ha.Mu goes by their terms and challenges the limits of clothing, transforming every garment into a work of art.
