Proposition is a clothing label set up in early 2017 by Fumika Oshima and Richard Spandler based out of Berlin and London. Fumika trained as a menswear designer at Central Saint Martins while Richard worked as a vintage clothing dealer specialising in worn, patched French workwear and military clothing. Fumika and Richard share a familiar aesthetic in their desire to use old and unusual fabrics to make clothing with a contemporary silhouette. Many of the clothing styles are constructed from antique fabrics taken from old clothing such as French farmer attire. They utilise the 'patch and repair' aesthetic of the vintage clothes Richard has collected from markets around the world. As a result, while each garment might share a particular style they have their own 'uniqueness'. Fumika and Richard both feel that the vintage and antique clothing from which the garments are made have a unique 'patina' and are usually of superior quality to many modern fabrics. Proposition also uses deadstock (unused) materials as well as unusual details such as military parachutes and bags to make its clothing. All Proposition garments are made in their studios either in Hackney Wick, in London or Berlin.
