The PRXER collection combines the ideas of slow fashion and eco fashion. The collection was created from scraps generated in production of clothes. It is a combination of seemingly incompatible elements of knitted fragments that originate from mistakes in mass production. Such mistakes, differences from the standard design, became the inspiration for original, experimental weaves. The hand-crafted knitting makes them unique. Manual work also helps in decreasing the production waste. The plethora of weaves and vivid textures makes the simple clothes look extraordinary. Such a character is also attributable to manual work that requires many hours of effort. The attention is drawn by the combination of smooth pastel shades with intensive red accents.
