Whilst we prepare to launch these online, we wanted to invite you to explore some of the behind the “seams” development that has been underway in the studio on project #3:
The Versatile Coat.
This project takes form from the amalgamation of adaptable design principles and sustainable perspective. project #3 is versatile in both function and aesthetic, a coat with thoughtful features to accommodate for varying weather conditions, style preferences and silhouettes.
We believe the route to absolute sustainability goes behind the conscious choice of materials and is something we are constantly exploring.
Design should play such an important role. With project #3, incorporating versatility and subtle transformative features was something we felt was important to achieve, whilst overall creating something aesthetically clean, simple and with longevity in mind.
One element clearly present in The Versatile Coat is the art of the tailor. The craft is conducted with precise care, ensuring that the elegant design is easily adaptable to our unique style preferences that we often experience with each new day. With such tailoring, project #3 has taken time and patience to create, but we find it to be refreshing to create the space for such time as well as the opportunity to promote the concept of mindful production. Henceforth, The Versatile Coat will only be available made-to-order for you.
In project #3 we have used only discarded materials (on all levels except thread) in an effort to avoid the creation of new, unnecessary materials as well as the waste of existing resources. We do not believe this is the ultimate solution to the problems we are facing as a society and our impact on our planet, but a conscious step towards being and inspiring a (re)vision.
We are excited to unveil to you soon the finer details and the full story behind The Versatile Coat. Stay tuned.
