Ever the constant innovator, Irina Dzhus has once again dreamed up a line of avant-garde garments for her latest Spring/Summer 2019 line.
Dedicated to the process of apparel manufacturing, the collection ‘Process‘ from the Ukanian womenswear brand celebrates the genuineness and imperfection of mock-ups and prototypes during the creation stage.
Through the use of experimental pattern-making, the collection features pieces that offer radical transformations, making the garments extremely adaptive to their wearers’ preferences and changing circumstances.
Highlights include trousers that can be modified into a jacket, as well as a bag that can be worn as a top or skirt.
A voluminous hood that will vanish once flatly folded also takes centrestage.
An obvious ‘in progress’ condition of garments is evident through the incorporation of exaggeratedly structured details, exposed seams and threads, and textiles that resembled crumpled paper.
Manufactured using cruelty-free, vegetarian-friendly materials, the designs from DZHUS are technical yet uncompromising, wearable and comfortable – all at the same time.
DZHUS Spring/Summer 2019 collection is now available at Ossis (Los Angeles), Decemberthieves (Boston), Casimir Pulaskiday (Tokyo), Modart (Dubai) and Mercado 32 (Perth), to name a few.
Her collection is also available online via Vathir, Erebus and The Clothing Lounge.
