Lesdaleshawerchuk x PLETKA bomber jacket collab
Bomber jackets became one of those pieces, where can be everything combined - especially when you have plenty of colourful materials with different textures. So when we were considering the collab for local competition with Pletka, we went for a bomber.
Pletka are girls from studion next to mine and then knit and knit and knit. They sew to and recently started with macrame. You can imagine my hype!
Collab was pretty easy - we sat down with Zuzana, picked materials from fabric and doilies to wool for knit, combined them, changed our design few times, agreed what it should look like and there we went. First Zuzana made sleeves, combining leftovers from other projects, all in colours matching the back of the jacket.
Then I finished bomber and sewn it together, basically pretty much the same way like usually we do. The brown body is made from old and damaged material from a communist era in Czechoslovakia, doilies and embroidery at the back are from flea markets in Holland and second hands from France, some of them in original colour, some of them dyed. Jacket is fully lined since lining is more pleasant for skin.
We entered the competition - and we didn't win :(
But we are still pretty pleased about our product - except zipper and labels it's a fully upcycled jacket made with a personal care and a lot of attention to detail. And it's available HERE.
