coming soon.....SUPER BASICS

...they're basics, but SUPER
Classics, cut-up.
Comforting, familiar, but a little complicated...better for having been broken

Each item in the new SUPER BASIC capsule series 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.

(white) SHIRT/(broken) little BLACK DRESSes
conceptual T SHIRTs/SWEATSHIRT comforters
rehabilitated PRINT dresses

SUPER BASICS (better for having been broken) is the first commercially available collection from DRESS and is the follow up to the CRISIS collection and follows the principles of the Crisis Manifesto of make. Selected items from the previous CRISIS collection will also be available to order. Pre-order available for December 2018- January 2019.
