Weaving Love, Creating "Hope": Product design

Competition Details

Indieform #2

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 front has a bold cut, shorter in the middle, and on the sides there are two flapper pockets. The same check cloth is used on the whole jacket, with inserts of gray fabric on the sides and forearms and on the round collar. To highlight the retro line (the jacket is inspired by the ‘60s), the arms have elbow pads made of soft leather and are turned inside-out to reveal the red lining. 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.
