SKINGRAFT X Twisted Lamb Leggings

SKINGRAFT - progressive grunge clothing with amazing fit

The brand produces clothing and accessories collections for men and women, with a taste of grunge and gothic. SKINGRAFT is known for their luxury leather wear items. The range of their progressive outfits are available at PASAR: Vests, scarfs, dresses, crop leather shirts and holsters.

For the modest streetwear lover, there are oversized flannels, hoodies, draped pants and long-sleeves, cardigans, bandanas with a signature SKINGRAFT print and skeletal print leggings. The hand-knit wool pieces and draped jersey goods build the bridge from avant-garde leather fashion to sportswear-like comfortable fit.

Leather meets hand-knitted wool

Wearable leather and knit combinations are signature Skingraft fabric compositions. Besides the trademark color black, the palette is muted with grey, brown and a few red clothing pieces. Latest collections play with sophisticated punk rock clothing elements and grunge features, such as metal zippers and hoodies for their progressive styles.
