Re-Purposing Fashion Waste With Our Legacy’s Concept Space WORK SHOP
There are different ways of acting sustainably as a fashion brand. One way is to make use of old collections and samples, making sure less things go to waste. That’s what it’s all about in the end, isn’t it? Closing the loop or at least making some u-turns. Embracing the fact that waste is produced and trying to level up.
WORK SHOP is a retail platform created by menswear label Our Legacy. Its Stockholm outlet is sort of like a crafts studio meets testing kitchen meets retail store, a messy and filled to the brim hybrid space with, well, amazing stuff. Press samples and garments from previous collections are either sold at reduced prices or deconstructed and rebuilt into new pieces, with the help of hand paint, prints, patchwork or whatever else ideas the Our Legacy team might have at the moment (and some ideas are transferred to future main collections). It’s also full of one-off vintage reference garments and cute gems like ceramic coat hooks and cassette tapes. And a tiny genderless kids’ collection with printed long-sleeve t-shirts and an odd Hawaiian shirt. Irresistible indeed.
The latest pop-up WORK SHOP opened in London the other week, and before that the WORK SHOP did a 50 day stunt in Los Angeles.
If you’re in London’s East End or in Stockholm, don’t miss out.
