Karen Jessen of the Benu Berlin label has just won The Ecochic Design Award 2013 for her innovative use of reconstruction techniques. Created from a mixture of waste and imagination each piece is a discovery – just like her list of ingredients above…
There’s gently rocking inspiration.
And a big focus on structure: Each piece is lovingly crafted.
There are rules – and then Karen sets about breaking them with confidence.
The best intentions need that bit of passion – and a bit of support: For her prize she’ll now design the 2015 ‘Recycled Collection by Esprit’ for Esprit’s global retail in mid 2014 – and I’ll be watching out for what she does..
Laters, Kate x
