Since its inception in 2002, Shakuhachi has garnered a worldwide reputation as a cult label, with a distinctive aesthetic that is recognisably Shakuhachi.
With no formal fashion training, the label was born by Bali-based designer Jesse White’s desire to create, and creating stylish pieces is something she does very well.
Expect bold prints, sleek tailoring and cleverly constructed garments to hang among the racks of the Chapel Street store, with a truly feminine aesthetic present in all that White creates.
The interior is modern, yet basic, letting the beautiful clothing speak for themselves. Among the clothing range you will find an impressive array of footwear, belts, caps and swimwear.
With a loyal following, the fresh and youthful label has appeared on red carpets, in the glossy pages of Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue and Yen, and is available throughout Asia, New Zealand, UK and USA.
With fresh looks seeming to appear every week, it is hard to say what we will see next from White’s Shakuhachi. But with an affinity for creating modern and sleek looks, whether that be a bold print or a perfectly tailored jacket, there will always be something that keeps us coming back to South Yarra for more.
