Waley Gao is a designer based in Toronto and he launched his fashion label Tired Lab not too long ago, highlighting idiosyncratic designs. The latest Spring/Summer 2019 collection features a plethora of militaristic design cues which are amplified by patchwork infusions. The range delivers a selection of apparel and accessory options for the season, adorned with handstitched details as a form of careful craftsmanship.
The capsule showcases eclectic blends of fabric patchwork, informed by a series of zippers alongside subtle details. The piece that stands out most in the capsule if the 'Entropy Reversible Padded Jacket.' It boasts a silhouette that recalls that of a Japanese kimono with one side completely constructed from patchwork fabric and dangling threads -- the other side is done up in a nylon material recalling the design of a bomber jacket along with some bandana accents as well.
