MINISTRY OF SUPPLY Spring/Summer 2014 Collection
Further addressing the gap between functionality and style, the Ministry of Supply is the recently launched brainchild of former MIT students, Gihan Amarasiriwardena, Kit Hickey and Aman Advani.
Before meeting up in 2010, the three were no strangers to the unique intersections between technology and fashion. Amarasiriwardena applied his passion for chemical engineering to his first prototype dress shirt in 2011. Hickey’s life in Colorado meant splitting her time between the office and the rapidly-changing climate of the mountains, giving her a sensitivity to needs of performance-based design. Advani hacked his garments by transplanting the soles of his athletic socks on to the dress socks he wore with suits on his frequent long days.
These unique backgrounds all came together to produce innovations used in the label’s garments including 4-way stretch fabrics, super soft brushed finishes on garment liners and odor-absorbing Javafresh, a fabric made with recycled coffee grounds. The MINISTRY OF SUPPLY collection features a well-rounded assortment of everyday and easy-to-wear pieces. They range from button-ups and slacks, to more casual assortments of T-shirts and sweatshirts.
