This is without a doubt my favorite piece of the Whole Mixed Voyage collection.
Definitely the Master piece!
The shape and several materials involved in the construction of this on-of-a-kind piece are a truly representation of present and past.
Its minimal yet striking lines are inspired by city shapes but also they represent the strength of warriors and hunters from the medieval era. Merged with the futuristic shine of the lurex wool, complemented with an interesting clash of textures from the Upcycled wool sleeves and hood.
Resulting in a very unique piece showcasing an "A" line fit, that creates a beautiful and balanced body shape when you wear it.
Making this particular piece was such a complicated process. Finding the right preloved pieces that will make part of the coat was definitely a challenge, as we needed something with simple lines, in neutral tones but, also some clash that only different textures can bring.
I started carefully deconstructing the 3 different pieces to Upcycle.
One black lurex zippered long sleeve jacket, then pulling apart a vintage wool jumper where the balloon sleeves came from but, don't get fooled, the sleeves used to be dolman sleeves, so I turned them upside down, then added some elastic at the wrist for a much super comfortable fit. Resulting in a stunning oversized pair of balloon sleeves, that will keep you warm even during the hardest winter.
For the bottom part I wanted something edgy, yet minimal and of course very cozy to wear, that's when this amazing deadstock lurex wool came into scene. The whole piece seemed al right but it was missing the wow factor, did you get it right?
The hood! And what better than a wool hood right? But, this not your average hood. It features some screen printing inside out, designed and made by Noe, it is made up of asymmetrical panels from a wool dress that complement the edgy, sharp and street style design of the whole piece.
As you can see The Hunter coats tick all the boxes to keep you warm with unprecedent style. It is definitely a piece for that person who is not afraid to show of style and to stand out of the crowd, is that you?
Click the shop button NOW before it is gone, as this is a one-of-a-kind piece and I won't make any other like this again!
The "Unparalleled Voyage" is an Upcycled collection inspired by city shapes, it is a continuation of the "Mixed Voyage" collection that was specially designed for The Geelong Design week exhibition.
I created this collection in collaboration with the Architect and street artist Noe Mondragon aka Jerpone we used preloved materials, to highlight the importance of Slow fashion nowadays, and how architecture, design, and fashion are correlated. And now this unprecedent collection has been complemented with more limited edition pieces.
I source all my fabrics from preloved quality pieces and deadstock, so you are not only saving textiles from landfill, you are getting a unique piece of wearable art.
