Parts of two denim pants, reclaimed denim scraps, and interior lining in deadstock cotton plisse were reconstructed into a belted cape to remind us that the denim was a cotton flower. The sewing lines and existing pockets are intentionally visible to mark the previous life of the items. These parts are rescued from boxes of unwanted items of friends and neighbors after they have decluttered their wardrobes or found in local thrift stores. The item can not be reproduced identically with respect to the type of fabrics and their exact arrangement nor to the seams' irregularities. Each piece is individually cleaned, laid out, and cut at the Common studio and finished locally in Romania. Each garment comes with an individual tag that tells the story of the included parts, handwritten by the designer.
