Where we are now is what happened before.
More than thirty years ago Harputs adidas first opened in Oakland, California. Over the years, business evolved; Harputs adidas gave birth to Harputs Market and we transitioned from slinging sneakers to providing San Francisco with an outpost for avant-garde and rare designers, stocking names like Martin Margiela, Yohji Yamamoto, and Comme des Garcon.
This exposure to the industry made us wonder if we could produce clothing ourselves, but without the right people, right equipment, and right timing it was merely just an idea we entertained. It took additions to our team to get us going. Upon their arrival, we moved our industrial sewing machines out of storage and turned our upstairs loft into a working studio.
At the same time, we discovered a local tailor who had shut down his operations in 1989, leaving his factory and, consequently, all of his fabrics and machines untouched for twenty years. As he was working to get out of the business and we were working to find a way in, he provides us with both the direction and resources to begin and grow.
The end result: an evolutionary collection we call Harputs OWN.
We take a pragmatic approach to design, concentrating on the development of select "generic" garments (a shift dress, sweater, blazer) as statement pieces. Our creative process leans on curiosity and experimentation in conjunction with the various influences that inform our work: how each garment ages, how our customers react, and what new fabric we find. As a result, each piece is part of a communal effort and, thus, always subject to change.
Our aesthetic is simple yet unconventional- intelligent pieces that can be insensibly worn. By pairing tailoring techniques and refined details with simple silhouettes each piece is complex, yet uncomplicated. Ultimately, we aim to make easy clothing that can be worn multiple ways, accentuate many different body types, and lasts over time.
