Piece x Piece
Piece x Piece is a women’s sustainable fashion label that only works with pre-consumer textile waste as its material base.
Viennese label MILCH produce a women’s collection from upcycled classic men’s wear suitings. Their urban aesthetic has a quirky playfulness to it with upturned men’s pants turned into a woman’s shift dress, the waistband forming a pulled in hem. A mans pinstripe cotton shirt, becomes a wrapped and tied woman’s skirt with the sleeves forming the ties. A pretty cap sleeved top with ruched neckline is made from a crisp man’s white shirt; decidedly feminine and a lovely counterbalance coordinated with the masculine tailored wool skirt pants. MILCH hijacks classic men’s fashion and transforms it into a new modern collection for women.
MILCH’s Spring Summer 2014 collection features a ‘special edition’ capsule, made entirely with last seasons TENCEL shirts in collaboration with Lenzing. Working entirely with ‘retired’ men’s shirts, the collection is fresh, intriguing in its design sollutions, with a quirky tongue in cheek sollution to ‘office dressing’ with a conscience. Having worked with upcycled materials for fifteen years, Founder Cloed Priscilla Baumgartner is a pioneer in upcycling in the fashion industry.
