SKUNKFUNK TURNS TO TRAVEL

Sustainable fashion brand Skunkfunk's fall/winter 2012-13 collection hones in on today's traveling “urban nomads,” taking inspiration from the behaviors of past nomadic communities. The first color group starts there with earth tones paired with patterns influenced by images of carpets, rags and ethnic blankets printed across coats and knits. The second color group is entitled “Space Militants” and turns the line's focus towards the moon, the Skunkfunk girl's final frontier. Taking cues from Star Wars and Star Trek, the designers worked their military forms and patterns into geometrical, sci-fi structures reminiscent of electronic circuits or spaceship constructions. The dream of outer-space gives way to the third group, which takes root in the shapes and beauty of nature as well as in an overall concern for nature; the line uses eco-fibers and is working on developing its own sustainable fabrics, while also tracking the processes from cultivation to weaving and dying.

Wholesale prices for the collection start at €10 for t-shirts, range from €32-€72 for trousers and go up to €90 for coats; accessories are available for ratailers from €9 - €55.

The collection hones in on today's traveling “urban nomads,” taking inspiration from the behaviors of past nomadic communities.
