For Spring/Summer 2021, EDWIN utilise the research and innovation expertise of specialist Italian fabric mill, Majocchi, making use of their Cotton Nylon Ripstop with an iridescent tie-dye effect, reinforced with a durable ripstop structure and a water-repellent treatment.
To introduce the unique fabric we enlisted the help of Athens-based Hip-Hop artist, Kareem Kalokoh and musician and creative, Complex Shadow to take the collection for a test drive.
The military-inspired capsule consists of a hooded jacket, patch pocket shirt, utilitarian vest, cargo pant and relaxed-fitting shorts, providing the perfect combination of resistance, comfort, performance and style, all guaranteed by the ‘Majotech’ label on each garment.
With a ready to dye base, the fabric is treated with a particular dyeing technique that is able to create a tie-dye effect on the entire roll.
Available now at EDWIN Stores, selected retailers and Online.
