Weaving Love, Creating "Hope": Product design

Competition Details


by Astrid Manuela Tirlea

This unique jacket, paired with matching trousers and shirt, is part of a men’s collection designed especially for the youth of the moment. Although it has a classic line, the design is innovative regarding the use of a classic pattern - the check fabric. The middle part consists of a gray cloth, but it is cleverly combined on the sides and inner arms with a checked cloth. The jacket has a double collar - part gray, part an other checked fabric to complement the first one. To highlight the retro line (the jacket is inspired by the ‘60s), the arms have elbow pads made of soft leather and are slightly shorter. This design is very wearable, being a staple piece for youngsters from highschool throughout their late 30’s and even for every modern man, regardless of age.
