'The Traveller’ has been inspired from personal experience travelling abroad, embracing a diverse range of cultures whilst appreciating the various architectural and clothing aesthetics from countries like Romania and The Ukraine, to Switzerland and Germany. This menswear collection explores the idea of travelling around the world with only the items a man can carry on his back, without the need for wanting more. It is trans-seasonal and offers the choice of interchangeable garments for different outfit combinations. Garments within the collection explore multi-functionality, durability and the need for longevity, whilst being designed to minimise or eliminate waste during its manufacture. This being achieved through fully fashioning garments and utilising pattern cutting skills in combination with a draped silhouette. Ultimately, creating knitwear with an emphasis on sustainability which provides the wearer greater attachment to the garments, giving them a longer life.
