The apparel collection, represents a series of different wearable and accessible type of garments: Jackets, Sweaters, T-Shirts, Shirts, Dresses, Ensemble of trousers and Top with zip, and Accessoires: Tote bags and Scarves, upcycled into unique unisex screen printed luxury items. It is an extension of the couture collection ALL THE NOTHING THAT WILL REMAIN that represents a hybrid aesthetic of Western and African influences: funky, colourful and dazzled. It represents an assemblage and customisation of a selection of found discarded garments and textiles available for the customers to be chosen based on a series of garments and textiles available to order. The concept of open source couture will be communicated with transparency to the consumer which will receive an update about each step of the production in order to be engaged in the production process and to understand the new value system: from collecting, cleaning, disassemble, printing, embroidery, sewing, hand finishing and to the delivery. The interaction with the consumer is the main concept of the online shop for which it would also be possible to donate or send old unwanted garments to be upcycled and a repair service in order to extend the longevity of the garments. All the items are 100% remade in Switzerland by mixing upcycling with couture techniques and craftsmanships.

You love me
You waste me
You taste me
Me is not all of

You disappear.
Expecting you in my center,
you vanish.
I’m walking straight
Walking towards you
Stumble,
faltering
I stop.
And fall, I fall,
fall

Being your appearance, hence I disappear.
Just yourself
Hiding in simplicity
You
In all directions
Zooming in
Zooming out
Within a blind focus

And if it should fall,
my hope falls with it.

And if it should fall.
I will fall with it.

And if I should fall,
we will fall together.
