The inspiration from this design came from my trip to the Toshiba Gallery at the V&A Museum in London. Seeing how cranes were used to create movement across all mediums in Japanese art is magical. Japanese art and culture has influenced almost every aspect of my work, and continues to do so. To create this design I started with one key illustration and re-created it several times in varying sizes, adding unique and intricate patterns to each version. I then used brush strokes and fluid lines to help them take flight.

Each one of these is one of a kind with variations to the print placement making each jacket unique to you. A labour of love, these jackets are incredibly special and made one-by-one in Brighton by one of our seamstresses.

  • 100% Eco GOTS cotton
  • 5 sustainable horn buttons and buttoned pocket
  • Grey Japanese linen cord tie waist
  • Available in 2 sizes. 

As all of our pieces are hand-made to order, creation and shipment times do vary. Our commitment to slow, sustainable, fashion means that we treat each piece as a bespoke garment. This means that every item will be created to order by our caring meticulous team right here in Brighton.

If you have a special event that you would like to have your garment for, please email us at studio@sophiedarling.com and we will do our best to fulfil it.

The Darling Difference

Open tab

Creativity with purpose
We take beautiful images, drawings and paintings created by Sophie herself and rework them into illustrative, timeless designs. Our ethos lies in creative exploration, where art and fashion collide into collections of colour, pattern and print. We specialise in the unique, referencing and taking inspiration from natural phenomena and especially iconic Japanese paintings.

Sustainable values
We don’t use any plastic in our packaging. We hand deliver where possible and we collect and drop production pieces by hand. All of us walk to work. Our fabrics are purchased in the UK, we use UK print companies for our digital collections and our hand printing is done in house.

Our sustainability lies in our production process and in keeping our numbers small.

Read more on our Sustainability page. 

Care for your hero piece
We advise treating her kindly. Any silk items, especially our quintessential silk bomber jackets must be dry cleaned - and not just any old dry cleaner, but someone you trust to take care of her as well as you do. You'll treasure her for years to come. 

Satin silk scarves are happy to be hand washed in cool water. Use gentle detergent, don’t soak and gently wring out hanging to dry. Do not tumble dry. Cool iron on reverse. 

Please see the care label for other instructions.
