Based on the mathematical golden ratio used across forms in geometry, art and architecture, and employed by legends including Le Corbusier and Fibonacci, Kimberly Wesson and Aimee Cho started 1.61 in pursuit of sartorial perfection. The New York-based label’s USP is its focus on workwear-inspired staples. Imagine the perfect utility pants and chino shirts, simple in form but superior in the label’s use of Japanese and Italian fabrics, with authentic hardware details sourced from the US military. The line’s signature pant, the AS chino, is a versatile drop-crotch style that you’ll find yourself wishing you could wear every single day. New and exclusive to Lane Crawford in Asia, 1.61 presents understated, luxurious basics against a rich utilitarian backdrop.
