The Ice-Wash Jacket C2, my new favorite! How was that done? Here are some highlights below! Enjoy! (Remember that all these clothes can be ordered in your size, or, learned how to make yourself. Please contact Alexander@StenMartin.com for more info.)
New items in! Adding the Ice-Wash Denim Jacket and the Basic White T-shirt to the Thousand Days Of Hope And Glory project. I call them C2 and A5.
Both just made, this t-shirt has a relaxed fit, short sleeves an a rather old-school neckline. A kind-of anachronistic look, mixing 1980’s a bit naive clean-cut fresh look (neckline, fresh white, properly made and oversized) with a mid 2010’s deconstructed relaxed feel (narrow shoulders, small sleeves, drape over torso).
Deadlines! Having a slight fever. A bit tired. Lagging behind. Feeling a little blue… what to do?
Maybe if I add one of the other ingredients, the cake will bake much better? If I head over in one of the other categories I could possibly save myself some time due to the combination possibilities? Let’s try that!
First day of the project! My mathematical experiment – Thousand Days Of Hope And Glory. Yes!
Finished these three designs just in time for today. My first combination! And at the same time the very first items from our three categories A – A top, B – Bottom and C – Cover!
My work with denim has changed much compared to back in the days. I feel much more relaxed about it after decades of practicing. And I’m experiencing a certain comfortness around this classic workwear theme. To be experimenting with small details seem more interesting to me right now, than radically changing such a very well-known concept. Alter seam-placements, investigating a fabrics’ ability to form and change under the influence of damp, moist, human temperature and usage. To test how different shapes are experienced by the user. And study “personal fading” – the individual fade – where all creases appear according to the user’s movements and washing preferences. All above, very specific things that to me has become so very important in creating great individual design.
