“circle” coat

Request from customer

-The color faded through aging, and the fabric is worn out.
-The lining is ripped.
-Repair of the cuffs.


2002-03a/w “circle” coat.
The coat had been worn for nearly 20 years and transformed overall to look used. The owner said she liked the look, but we repaired it for her so she can use it for a longer time.

Part of the randomly layered flock print was worn out, so we made a patchwork of new flock fabric in that area.
The torn lining was replaced with a new fabric, and the damaged cuffs were reinforced with a similar fabric.
We value repair methods that repair partially rather than repair entirely that will also erase precious memories.
The fading on the arms and the worn-out hem seem to tell the story of the user’s daily life and the days that have gone by. We look forward to seeing how this coat will age over time and witness its transformation.
