While typing this, it hits me that nothing I’m wearing was how it was intended.
Besides the former-charger-choker and the bulldog clip, both the skirt and top are actually dresses. My bag is in the first place a shoulder bag, but with its straps wrapped around it, it becomes a small handheld purse. Funny because it was not really intended. Although Multi-functionality has been on my mind a lot lately while working on the next new products for the Aetelier. Perhaps when you’re looking for new possibilities, different applications in one place, you suddenly see it everywhere else too.
Things with multiple functions are naturally used the most. Stuff that can take on different shapes and is versatile doesn’t get tired. It means that you can have less stuff, it means that you can travel lighter. It’s so interesting to me that the most simple and basic things are also the most multi functional and that multifunctionality and timelessness are so closely linked together. A brick for example with infinite applications. Or a basic knife can still do the job of most of the functions of all the specialised, fancy kitchen tools. Anyway – the new products are not going to be knives or bricks but two of them are going to be wearable. So exciting!
