Two Eight’s winter collection is a perfect representation of its style and identity. Patchwork blends in harmoniously with bright colours and loose silhouettes in “The Chrome Act”.
As the name suggests, “The Chrome Act” is a play on multiple colour palettes in the form of embroideries and patchwork. The garments are made from deadstock, i.e. pre-consumer textile waste and are upcycled to make unique, one of a kind creations which are unmistakably Two Eight. Each detail is meticulously planned- from the colour combinations and placement of each of the fabric patches, down to the fabrication of buttons. The surface ornamentations also include minimal embroidery, keeping in line with the brand’s aesthetic. The colour palette includes high contrast, bright colours easily blended with neutrals, often bordering on monochromatism. Block prints and natural fabrics dominate the collection with additions of screen and digital prints.
Being all inclusive, the garments in the collection are designed to be free size- a size that fits all. The collection comprises loose fitting, A-line silhouettes incorporated into kaftans, jackets, tops, tunics and scarves. The making of each article of clothing in the collection is intricate in terms of the preparation of the base fabric as well as its actual construction. The garments hold an essence of warmth and comfort, in utter consonance with the winter season.
For us, utilizing fabric scraps is a great way of not just beautifying products, but also helping minimize and manage waste. Through this collection, Two Eight aims to make a difference, one scrap at a time-
