202107 Bricolage (PATCHWORK)
TROPOPAUSE2021Year7Introducing patchwork short-sleeved shirts from the moon shirt series "Bricolage". Two outfits with a summery design.
Play in blue
The theme this time is "Bricolage". It is a shirt created by patchwork = cloth peeling, which is the specialty of TROPOPAUSE. The incompleteness that lasts forever, like a do-it-yourselfer in the process of making, is what makes patchwork so interesting. As the name of bricolage suggests, it is a shirt with a mysterious charm that seems to be unfinished, as if the fabrics were randomly pasted together.
For the patchwork part, we have adopted a bricolage (collected) fabric from the archives so far. The dead stock fabric has been reborn as a new product by utilizing the excess cloth that is inevitably produced when making shirts and redesigning it as a completely different product.
Linen, stripes, hickory, Oxford, indigo, chambray ... There are various types of fabrics and weaves. The disparate materials that seem to have been collected by chance are combined to create harmony as a single piece of clothing.
It is also recommended to open the front and wear it roughly. Even though the design is unique, the base is a calm sky blue, so you can choose bottoms. It is a design shirt that makes a good statement when you want to casually show your individuality in a neat place.
Oversized, loose and rough. There is no waist shape that is often found in ladies' shirts, so it has a mannish atmosphere. Whether you wear it like men's shoes or wear it with heels for a clean look, the range of coordination will expand.
The fabric is a cool contact material that feels cool to the touch. It is high-density, firm, and less likely to wrinkle, so it is easy to clean at home. Please wear a lot this summer.
The other is a colorful patchwork shirt that shines with advanced Japanese craftsmanship. Rather than layering patterns on a blue shirt, all the patterns are made by peeling off the cloth. Therefore, there is no thickening, and it gives a clean and light impression even though it is patchwork. You can wear it lightly even in summer.
If you look closely at this pattern, do you notice that the lines are slightly distorted? It's not a straight line like a ruler because it's a patchwork with hand-drawn lines. Such commitment is one of the elements that can be realized only by handwork. It is because of such details that even a sharp design feels warm.
As always, we offer 5 unisex sizes that you can use regardless of age, gender, or body shape. Choose the fit you like, whether it's just size or oversize.
At TROPOPAUSE, we announce a new series every month and make only what we need for build-to-order manufacturing. We believe that such a production system is the first step toward building a sustainable society without imposing a burden on the environment as much as possible and imposing an unreasonable burden on producers. It will take some time before delivery, but we appreciate your understanding.
