HEIMAT ATLANTICA X COMME DES GARÇONS
THIS COLLABORATION WITH CDG REPRESENTS OUR IDEAL PROJECT, TO IMAGINE SPACES WHERE ANCESTRAL TECHNIQUES AND CONTEMPORARY IDEAS COME TOGETHER IN ORDER TO CREATE OBJECTS THAT POSSESS THE ENERGY OF EVOLUTION.
WITH THIS PROJECT WE BROKE THE BOUNDARIES OF TRADITIONAL PORTUGUESE BASKET WEAVING AND WE ADAPTED THE TECHNIQUE TO DESIGN ANOTHER SHAPE: A TOTE BAG.
"We’ve found a sublime suitcase essential for those lucky enough to be jetting off for some September sun. This Comme des Garçons Comme des Garçons x Heimat Atlantica tote bag, available at Dover Street Market in London, has been handwoven by Portuguese craftsman, using the ancient art of weaving reed. The style reflects an avant-garde approach typical of the subversive retailer, with its colourings evoking an optical illusory pattern. An accessory which will bring unusual shape to your ensembles for those last days of summe"
