Andrew DriftwoodBoro Collection by Andrew Driftwood
02 – 12 July

We are presenting work by a fashion brand Andrew Driftwood, a brand started by Aogu Otsuka in 2013.

Otsuka uses antique fabrics often found in England. Fabrics are dyed using traditional methods and made into clothes by Otsuka himself in his studio in Tokyo. Otsuka designs and makes pieces that are timeless and be worn as long as the fabric lasts.

For this exhibition, Otsuka made a collection using Japanese antique fabric, boro. Boro is textiles from nineteenth and early twentieth century when fabric was valuable. Once clothes were made, it would be endlessly repaired and patched throughout the owner’s lifetime, or perhaps longer. Old kimonos were sewn layer-on-layer using salvaged swatches, every scrap was reused over and over again. These textiles may have their origins in austerity and utilitarian design but the sophistication of the repeated repair, often by several successive generations, makes each piece completely unique.

With the same philosophy, Otsuka created wearable pieces, giving new lives to much cherished boro textiles. We hope many people will have a chance to see this collaborative work of Otsuka and our ancestors.

“Wright & Doyle” is a unit formed by plant lovers; a gardener (Matt Wright) and a pattern cutter (Izabella Doyle).

A few years ago, we met for the first time when the couple visited Momosan Shop in search for some objects for their new home Chinampa: a boat house that they just designed to accommodate not only themselves but their ever expanding number of house plants.

Having their backgrounds in fine art and pattern cutting, Wright & Doyle designed and handcrafted a range of products catering to those with a passion for gardening and all things green. With every consideration to their function and form, the collection includes unique garments and accessories such as plant stands with hand casted ceramic pots and hand knotted plant hangers. Everything that they have made are the things that they use and surround themselves in their daily lives.

This week, WRIGHT & DOYLE is transforming our window with their first collection with rare plants sourced by them. We are celebrating its launch this Thu, 14th May (Friday 15th May, 6-8pm). We hope you can be part of it and enjoy a drink or two with us.
