We're thrilled to introduce the second in our series of Open Closet Reimagined (OCR) Capsule Collections- developed in partnership with embroidery artist Lee Caroline Mackey.
Our first OCR collection was an in-house experiment, altering tonlé returns from Open Closet that needed some special love. For this second collection our focus remains fixed on reducing textile waste but we've sourced second hand clothes from other brands. With their unique set of skills Lee has reinvented these pieces which did not make the cut for resale and were destined for the dumpster.
"By working using images of animals, sometimes in a mythological context, I hope viewers catch a glimpse of the magic of the natural world. Awe at the beauty of nature is one of the best tools for fighting environmental apathy. Clothes are a necessity, but as we increasingly disconnect from making and mending them, their manufacturing becomes lower quality and less sustainable. My hope is that as we make more thoughtful decisions today, we can continue to re-center ourselves toward thoughtful care and stewardship of the Earth."
