Specially designed for the Unprecedent Unparalleled collection!
The preloved buttons all over the to front are without a doubt the main feature of the one-of-a-kind Minstrel jacket. And let me tell you, that took me quite long hours of experimenting and hands-stitching until I got them all in the right place.
The minstrel jacket is a celebration of the creative musicians and medieval singers who sang or recited lyric or heroic poetry to musicals accompaniment for the nobility in the 19th and early 20th centuries.
It is the perfect combination of strong medieval era with antique traces that only vintage buttons can have, and the softness of the tulle, all in one single piece.
It features a peplum cut that it is probably one of the most flattering cuts, as it sits right at the waist and automatically creates a beautiful and balanced hour glass shape.
Edgy, stylish, beautifully shaped and strong - be your own inspiration and sing your own song in Minstrel jacket!
But be quick and do it NOW, as I won't be making any other piece like The Minstrel jacket 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 Mexican 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 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.
