Recently, Christeson and Turner have been meditative about how to take functionality adult a notch. They landed on reversibility. While a thought of a mantle that can be ragged inside out is really renouned in a universe of children’s wardrobe (a reversible T-shirt is fundamentally sorcery to a three-year-old), in workwear, reversibility can indeed have unsentimental value. For instance, it means we can lift fewer panoply while traveling, given any square can be ragged dual ways.
Back in 2016, Argent launched an wholly reversible suit–both pants and blazer can be ragged inside out. That outfit was so successful that the code has now launched an whole line of reversible clothes, from tops to dresses to suits.
From a pattern perspective, it takes many stairs to make an outfit truly reversible. Take a tweed V-neck dress, for instance. The hems and a stitches need to be delicately positioned so they demeanour good on both sides. There also need to be pockets on both sides, and they need to be sewn in such a approach that a stitches don’t uncover by on a other side. “For me, it’s not only designing,” says Turner, who designs any garment. “It’s about engineering solutions to problems for an abandoned market.”
