Rocking H x Merz b. Schwanen  | AW2017

A co-branded collaboration of Rocking H and Merz b. Schwanen. Iconic 1950's T-shirts by Merz b. Schwanen  are washed, painted, and stamped to each  be made into one of a kind and utterly unique. Each garment is customized with labels cut from original union jack flags and sewn by hand.

A melding of two approaches to the one garment: Merz b. Schwanen essentials are so pared down in style in contrast to the touch of an intensely artistic and creative process by Rocking H. Each piece is a single design and structure, thanks to both the typical irregularities found in the natural, loopwheeled Merz b. Schwanen materials as well as through the exceptional treatment by Rocking H. The contrast of this synergy is a wonderful example of what the different takes on a one-of-a-kind garment can become when brought together.
