Story Cloths

Story Cloths

I find having nice textiles around the house makes life so much better. From a cozy rug that relaxes the feet, tablecloths that make mealtimes more enjoyable, to traditional handcrafted fabrics that add character to the walls. Textiles not only define our aesthetic, but they also connect us to diffe…
CONSHELF II: LIFE IN A SMALL SPACE

CONSHELF II: LIFE IN A SMALL SPACE

Isolation is the new paradigm we’ve suddenly found ourselves in. A seemingly familiar situation took place back in 1963, one of the most ambitious undersea living projects by Jacques-Yves Cousteau called the “Conshelf II”.

Wearable Equipment

Wearable Equipment

For most of my 20s, my office uniform was fairly straightforward: a black dress, perhaps a cardigan to rally against air-conditioning overuse, and maybe on a good day - shiny ballet flats. Hardly the most comfortable or functional clothes, but this rinse-and-repeat approach streamlined mornings, kep…

The Hard-Hitting Winter Ponytorial

It's been a minute since I've been in the studio. It has, and always will be, my favourite part of the gig to style clothes in a way that feels like the best form of self-expression for a range of very diffrent human beings. How we present ourselves to ourselves and to the outside world is to me,.…

W’M Culture Club: Behind the Poetic Lens of Christian Vizl

In the age of the internet, images of humans swimming with sea turtles, whales, sharks you name it, give us the false impression that these encounters are easy to come by. In reality, it takes lots of effort, patience, and serendipity. I have huge respect for underwater photographers. It’s more than…

Up till the end of the 20th century, it was known as the world’s second-largest opium producing region after Afghanistan. During that time, opium had funded…

Unravelling the Flannel

Unravelling the Flannel

Let’s get one thing straight, flannel and plaid are not the same things. Flannel is a fabric crafted by weaving wool or cotton yarn while Plaid is a pattern of checkered prints. Since 17th century plaid was added to give the flannel a more appealing look, so it's no surprise the word flannel is used…

Last week I travelled to Roi Et in the North Eastern part of Thailand to develop special handwoven and naturally dyed fabrics for the next W'menswear winter 20 collection. Working with small cottage industries who keep tradition and an old way of life alive, impels me to do more. W'menswear is i.…
