EMBROIDERY 12/24 (Large)
IDEAS HAVE WINGS:
A COLLABORATION WITH TEXTILE ARTIST ELVIRA HARGHANS.
Last November we started a dialogue with Swedish artist Elvira Varghans questing whether is possible to create a workwear shirt with a twist. We exchanged ideas, fabrics and materials via regular post office. The outcome is the production of 24 unique shirts with a distinctive yet a discreet detail. Elvira embroidered each collar by hand in her studio in Malmö. Later, we received them back in Athens and we shaped one-off garments made from greek heavy-weight cotton. Every shirt is unique and has its own embroidery. The inner back is screen printed on the top with our collaboration's signature, handwritten by the artist.
