An extension of the Vintage Frames crew from Montreal, they have started a new inhouse brand called Shred & Sew. Shred & Sew sources some of the rarest deadstock high end vintage materials, from the likes of Fendi, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Hermes, Gucci and many more. They then take these rare high end materials and chop them down into limited run pocket tee shirts. Premium tee bodies and amazing stitching on each shirt.
Grab them at the Anchor Division Shop.
Symmetry Spring/Summer 2012 – Technical Scarves
From where we are sitting, just about any scarf is unisex. Floral, grandmotherly silk swatch? We can make it work. So these self-tagged unisex scarves from Symmetry are not doing us any favors in the “can we?” department, but they do have other attributes to speak of. Japanese fabrics, yes, yes, we have been there. But what is this? Leather straps with hand-cast carabiners?
“We are also obsessed with functionality, as that is the idea behind the brand—keeping the scarf in place, in a functional yet aesthetically interesting way,” Symmetry replies. “Our square scarf, the Dixon, also transforms into a tote bag.”
Symmetry also offers up some leather goods (belt, pouch, wallet) and a nylon poncho—all of it made in Los Angeles and available here.
