Sustainable fashion label Junky Styling has transformed the perception of second hand clothing. Working with high quality unwanted clothing; the design entrepreneurs deconstruct and re-cut garments, resulting in innovative and truly exclusive pieces.
The founders of the brand, Annika Sanders and Kerry Seager, take inspiration from cities such as San Francisco and Tokyo in their attitude to recycling, together with the resourcefulness of the Vietnamese.
Junky Styling offers a unique opportunity for customers to bring in their very own pieces for a full transformation – The Wardrobe Surgery Service.
The fusion of a traditional suit jacket with a khaki, red tartan mix blanket creates a unique, casual sports jacket. Lined with tie fabric and keeping the existing pockets (re-worked at a different angle), it is a clever use of functional properties from each component.
Again utilising a tartan wool blanket in a blue and green colour way, this time it becomes the sleeves of an air force blue roll neck jumper. If that still doesn’t take your fancy, maybe a simple, classic scarf made using sleeves from a jacket or a patchwork sweater created from a selection of recycled fabrics is more suited to you?
If you appreciate the clever concept of Junky Styling’s collection and believe in a sustainable future, then why not invest in a statement one off piece or reinvent an existing item from your wardrobe. I am sure you must have a Scottish wool blanket stored somewhere in your closet – it may just become part of your new winter coat!
