Wearable Recycled Art From WalterWorks

Hurray for more green fashion and recycled wearable art, this time from London-based WalterWorks. These pieces are from Belgium-born Walter Raes.

I am particularly fond of these designs as it is really easy to identify what they are made from, be it mops, rubber gloves or cassette tapes. This aspect of simple identification does take away from the practical wearability of the items, however. I am not sure that I would be massively into going out covered in scrubbers!

Implications - WalterWorks proves once again that one man's trash is another man's treasure. The designer believes that the trash thrown away around the world is offensively criminal, and it is from these throw-aways that he crafts his design. Stats for Trashy Fashion Trending: Older & Warm
