jersey ny patchwork shorts - plant kween
These garments are a special edition of our popular Ny shorts, made available as part of our summer collection. For comfortable everyday style they feature a high elastic waist with deep pockets to keep essentials close at hand. A screen-printed half moon design created using nontoxic water based inks offers a contemporary finish.
Each pair of these shorts is made from soft, upcycled scrap jersey leftover from previous tonlé collections- as such there may be some fabric variation. Please scroll down to see flatlay photos and fabric samples of the currently available batch.
This gender-expansive style was designed in collaboration with Christopher, aka The Plant Kween. Each piece in this collection celebrates Christopher’s effortless style with tonlé’s sustainable, zero waste process. In line with our shared vision of disrupting gender binarism in the fashion industry, each garment has been developed through a gender expansive lens to offer fits of self-expression and joy designed to fit a range of bodies.
Vichka is 5'6" wearing wine in S. Skyler is 5'11" wearing orange and teal in S. If you're looking for a more neutral short, you can also find the Ny shorts here in plain jersey.
This piece is made from cotton jersey remnants (t-shirt offcuts) – and may include a blend of other natural plant-based fibers and some elastic. We burn test each fabric to assure that it is at least 90% natural, plant-based fiber. To best take care of your zero waste upcycled garment (and to be as earth-friendly as possible), we recommend machine washing in cold water, and hanging to dry. This garment can be ironed on low heat on the back side of the print, but we really don’t think that’s necessary! Our t-shirt fabrics are carefully hand selected each week from remnant markets where large manufacturers bring discarded off-cuts and deadstock, and we do our best to select the most consistent, comfortable, soft, and high-quality fabrics. Fabrics are pre-washed and shrunk, but if you machine dry this garment it may shrink slightly.
