We believe in the meaningful role fashion plays in our personal narratives, and at the heart of our research is the desire to listen and learn from the social landscapes that inform our creative sensibility.

With this in mind, we’ve done our homework and framed our project to highlight local and biological with traditional craft and recycled techniques, whilst staying true to our design signature.

All of our work is framed through the study of a Monday to Friday working week, exploring everyday rituals associated with current social settings in and outside of the office. Each day represents a new untold story; one that can be easily translated into wardrobe essentials, whilst providing a framework for our ongoing research.

This outfit brings together our love of tailoring and playful, yet workable silhouettes, with the addition of a hand knitted vest in collaboration with Jaime Smith celebrating the art of craftsmanship. The future of fashion for us means taking responsibility for our clothing throughout the entire process, therefore we ultimately design for longevity and circularity with the aim of cultivating lifestyle changes to support and nurture the world around us.
