Jacke wie Hose is a collaborative project between two women on great distance. Never having met before, both share passion and interest in how we wear and think about clothes. The research project lead to a playful experimentation in cutting, layering and connecting clothing items. Eventually shapes were created, that hold the possibility to become both jacket/ dress and trousers, allowing the wearer to decide how and what to wear next. A jacket/ dress can turn into a pair of pants and vice versa. The transformative garment pieces allow endless ways of dressing. The result of this collabo- ration engages an alternative view on clothes and opens up a critical discourse on fashion. At the same time it reflects ways for creatives in the field to work together in a sustainable way instead of against each other.

Collaboration with: Lea Schweinfurth
