CRAIG PORT: ‘Black Moon Rising’, Autumn/Winter 2015 Collection


Inspired by the juxtaposition of modern and ancient Japanese design, Craig Port looked to Eastern culture when conceptualising the ‘Black Moon Rising’ collection. The collection celebrates primordial philosophies with a bold and modern edge.



Shadow cobalt and plum tones compliment an inky monochromatic colour palette where abstract patterns rendered in black and white sit graphically on luxurious materials. Digital embroidery and dream-like shadow designs echo an Eastern aesthetic with a uniquely western feel.


Pieces within Black Moon Rising seamlessly merge functionality with clean Japanese silhouettes. Black-clad with component detailing, shielding coats and pocketed bombers are best paired with narrow cropped trousers and the season’s iconic voluminous pant.

The longer length suit jacket and blanket cape layer effortlessly over signature PORT collared shirts and weightless knits, and thoughtful fusion touches are evident in organic faux fur trims, sharp-shouldered belted overcoats and sueded Geisha inspired shoes. The new look moonbag worn high on the waist adds a touch of urban pop culture and the traditional karate belt makes a fashion forward comeback.


Leather, velvet chenille and wax-coated cotton is balanced by warmer cable knits, velveteen and space dyed fleece making for a compelling yet completely wearable and cohesive collection.
