reimagined blue/green plaid coat - lyrebird with candles - s
The lyrebird is one of two species of ground-dwelling Australian birds, most notable for their superb ability to mimic both natural and artificial sounds from their environment. The mystery of the lyrebird in the room of six candles remains to be told- though we’re eager to hear the outcome if you figure it out. This reimagined jacket is size small, originally from St. Johns Bay.
For our second Open Closet Reimagined collection we’re thrilled to work with embroidery artist Lee Caroline Mackey. Their work focuses on giving new life to upcycled garments through carefully placed, hand-sewn embellishments inspired by nature. “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.”
We hope you enjoy the new magic infused into these pre-loved garments as much as we do.
