London – Natural Elements
Akimi and Neil are partners in every sense of the word, they are both designers and run ARNMercantile.com a men’s clothing brand made from 100% organic cottons and dyes. When I first saw Akimi and Neil I instantly knew they were a couple. this is also reflected in there brand, which is a blend of Japanese and English designed classic durable menswear. Neil looks like he is channelling the Alan Ginsberg beatnik look- blink and Neil could have of stepped off the streets of San Francisco or New York circa 1959 – rather than London 2009. While Akimi’s look has more of a homespun rustic country appeal.
