Taiwan’s LESS joins up with “independent experimental organization” ZAMECHACER for a unique collaboration centering around vintage World War II military garments. After sourcing authentic, untouched goods across Asia, the duo tore them apart, retrofitting vintage backpacks, parkas, liner jacets and fatigue shirts with a variety of upgraded textiles. Cordura shells, waterproof Tyvek and vegetable-tanned leather accents appear throughout, joining the worlds of technical garments and handmade craftmanship. For the final touch, ZAMECHACER hand-dipped each garment in a traditional black dye, yielding a variety of distinctive discolorations.
Keep an eye on LESS’s web store and social media for more information on the extremely limited goods, reportedly dropping towards the end of February in an edition of 10.
