Shapeshifter || 戦士 BLACK | KRSNA – LABOUR KNITWEAR

Black | Krsna is a collection of androgynous garments made from natural fibres, personally designed and constructed by queer Sydney-sider Benji Chandler, who recently relocated to Berlin. The brand focuses on embodying the flow of the Japanese mind, Krishna and the spiritual self. The signature colour is black, and nature is the experience. Black Krsna is for all.

 

Shapeshifter || 戦士 encompasses the ‘Labour’ knitwear collection (releasing at the end of the month) in conjunction with a 10 x artist collaboration designed and produced in Sydney. The models are Roymata – a queer contemporary dancer from New Zealand, and Sheba – an amazingly talented upcoming performer.
