Practical Clothing for Practical Women – Elegance in the Elements.

This collection explores an alternative to un-flattering outdoor-wear by combining the tactile, practical and ergonomic detailing in menswear with elegant lines and traditional textile techniques of Japanese workwear.

It reignites the relationship between the wearer and clothing by preventing them from becoming a burden and allowing them to aid the tasks in hand including dealing with extreme or harsh conditions.

The garments investigate components from many different aspects of a practical lifestyle including work wear, the outdoors and a raw natural aesthetic; creating apparel for practical, strong and elegant women.
