FW11 Collection: Reservation Life
This season I focused on the idea of process, the effects of time, hunting & gathering and the utility based clothing required for such living. All the fabrics are overdyed and wrenched, given a worn, lived-in feel. Considering the colors of the Pacific Northwest where I grew up with dark forest greens, khakis and mixed faded blacks. Direct homespun references like actual americana quilts and plaid flannels are memorialized by being sewn into modern trench silhouettes with dolman sleeves and vintage inspired hooded stadium coats with large pockets available fur-lined by custom order.
The staple concept of non-traditional, casual suiting arrives in looser fit wool twill and shrunken tailored flannels. The majority of the details are private and knowable only to the owner and the subdued palette is intended so any pieces from the collection can be worn together. In this way it is the most personal collection as I wanted to feel like I honestly would wear every piece this season.
To accessorize this range there is a quilted loop scarf with hidden pocket, English navy waxed coat rainshell and a tribute Grateful Dead
tee shirt hand screened in a limited edition.
