Tasmanian Mic Eaton, a self-taught designer surfed a professionally junior career until the age of 19. It was a recurring knee problem that forced him out of the water and an eye opening trip to Japan, that influenced the launch his first menswear collection at Australian Fashion Week in 2003.
In search of creative experiences Eaton relocated to Antwerp in 2009 where he helped found one of Antwerp’s most iconic fashion stores RA, He later worked with Antwerp 6 designer Ann Demeulemeester.
Being a surfer, Mic became a close friend and probably the most important sparring partner in the idea to launch HAVEN. It was only a matter of time before he would design a collection for us. After he created NCHE Surf in Australia he moved to the South West of England where he runs his design studio and an organic mushroom farm.
When we first started to talk we immediately agreed we wanted to stay away from traditional fashion seasons and create high quality, timeless pieces that last long and stay relevant for years.
We are proud to present the HAVEN x MIC EATON collection, a symbiose between contemporary surf culture and Antwerp fashion/lifestyle. Minimalistic designs for both men and women. Designed in Antwerp, sustainably crafted in Portugal.
