Vertiginous heels, mini-skirts much too tight, belts that reduce off respiration; the concept a bit of clothing can save a life has never crossed our minds. Nevertheless, it finally popped into Bas Timmer’s head eight years ago when he discovered that the homeless father of one in every of his buddies had frozen to dying. Whereas looking for a “distinctive” garment for a faculty venture, he created the Sheltersuit: a sleeping bag jacket. Then he created the Shelterbag: the identical concept, but in a bag model. His foundation, eponymous of his first creation, which got here to life in 2014, is devoted to distributing this heat, waterproof, multifunctional garment to homeless individuals. Additionally it is ecological, as it's designed from leftover material scraps and supplies from manufacturers, typically even massive homes. Like Chloé, who collaborated last yr with the inspiration, making a backpack manufactured from recycled elements, whose buy allowed two Shelterbags to be made. This season he introduced, on behalf of the label Sheltersuit, a show on the Palais de Tokyo in the course of the Paris Trend Week. Supported once once more by Chloé for the donation of uncooked materials, he unveiled a style disguised, practical, typically even reversible, imposing but above all sportswear. Their mantra, Individuals Serving to Individuals, was printed on some pieces of the collection. With the street as essence, the models paraded round piles of the well-known sleeping bag, which have been (obviously) distributed to the homeless on the finish of the show.
