    FIDM Grad Fashion Designer Evan Kinori Featured in SF Chronicle


    When Evan Kinori transferred to FIDM SF to study fashion design, he left a French and philosophy double major behind. But he did take a personal philosophy with him. He wanted to design minimalist work wear that would last a long time. The line he introduced in Fall 2015, and now carried at Reliquary in SF and County LTd and RTH in LA is known for its simple beauty and durability. The skateboarder/designer uses Japanese denim and reinforces seams and buttons for maximum longevity—and all the pieces are made in the U.S. He likes his denim with "crazy character," he tells The San Francisco Chronicle. "Denim is one of the few fabrics that gets better with age."
