Human By Nature is an independent clothing brand inspired by nostalgia and the new founded by John Lehman. HBN was founded in Hong Kong, but has roots in Tokyo, Beijing, Boston and now Cape Town. For 2020 HBN taps into Cape Town’s rich nautical history by creating a vintage naval themed, work wear style collection that has elements of nature from the ocean woven in through its choice of dye techniques, and colour pallets balance both the human and nature elements. This collection was shot in Simon’s Town home to the South African navy. All pieces in this collection were designed and made in Cape Town, South Africa.
