AUTUMN_WINTER ’008 - ’009

Drawing inspiration from the actions of soldiers during the First World War, who used earth from the trenches to make their uniforms dirty, thus inventing the concept of camouflage, the fabric base in black satin weave cotton of military origin bonded to a black polyurethane cover on the inner face has been faded with a corrosive paste, over dyed and then hand painted on the finished garment to create a camouflage effect. By means of this manual process, each garment is rendered unique and unrepeatable. The detachable quilted nylon lining with polyester padding, with front edging and collar in felted wool, is attached to the outer garment using a system of ties, adapted from those used in the sailing world.
