It is no longer necessary to cut and stitch different fabrics together to create patterned or patchwork garments, the latest Straight Stretch fabrics have been developed in multi-weave combinations that recall the codes of “Boro” (the Japanese tradition of mending and patching), but with a distinctly urban flavour.
Variations in weave patterns are used to highlight the layered construction of the garment and to challenge our visual perception of the lines and proportions created with the dungaree-bib cut of this unlined work jacket.
INSPIRED BY "BORO"
Boro are Japanese textiles that have been mended or stitched together and recycled out of necessity and the desire to avoid waste. Generations of families handed down the carefully conserved Boro as they were made of expensive cotton piece.
In ancient Greek mythology, the Hecatoncheires, also called “Centimanes” or “Hundred-HandedOnes”, were ferocious giants.
These tailored workwear-inspired pants provide multiple pocket solutions for the many-handed, or for those who simply need to store the tools of their trade – whether it’s a monkey wrench or a mobile phone
THE ILLUSION OF "OVERALLS"
These styles are part of a new range that can be attached or suspended by a system of buttonholes and buttons to create a new kind of “combination” or the illusion of “overalls”.
