Two new lines for *SS19…

 

...they're basics but SUPER. Classics, cut-up. Comforting, familiar, but a little complicated...

(conceptual) T SHIRT/(adaptable) SHIRT/A (broken) little BLACK DRESS/SWEATSHIRT comforters…

 

Ongoing line of themed re-habilitated print dresses & dress parts.

Made from end of line left-over prints, vintage and found materials, celebrating the long traditional of the dressmaker and the art of waste not want not….

 

Both *SS19 lines are themed around the idea of being BETTER FOR HAVING BEEN BROKEN…

Each item in the new collections expresses a formal brokenness - has been cut open and re-cohered, or is in parts and re-assembled to be worn - held together to form a garment...interrupted, reinterpreted, re-assembled, broken open.

SUPER BASICS & REHAB are the first commercially available collections from DRESS and follow ideas of the Crisis Manifesto of make.
Pre-order available for January 2019 delivery, please contact for information.
