The Iceland-based artist means that his decorations have become a silent protest, “fertilising” machine-made mass produced garments in tribute of natural restoration.

On our minds is one of the more interesting Christmas charity collaborations this year, namely SHOWstudio’s team-up with vintage sportswear-upcycler James Merry. In support of the Save the Highlands project, an initiative aimed at conserving the Icelandic Central Highland as a national park, the artist (who was snapped up by i-D Magazine earlier this year) is customising donations from the wardrobes of Kate Moss, Bjork and Astrid Andersen with his signature nature-themed embroidery. Iceland-based Merry means that his glacier flower and moss decorations have become a bit of a silent protest, “fertilising” machine-made mass produced garments in tribute of natural restoration. The pieces will go on sale at a silent auction on Christmas Day. Find it here
