An Avant-Garde Capsule Collection

The Indigo Eden project is made in collaboration with Alessio Berto and consists of a collaboration with certified and transparent companies, students, and professionals to create a visionary capsule. This avant-garde capsule collection is inspired by primitive cultures that projects them into the future, a better future, through better care of the manufacturing processes and the recycling of materials for garments that last over time and space.

A Genderless Collection

For this project, they created 5 outfits with essential characteristics, aspects of utility and attention to detail, and production processes. The garments will not have gender or belonging but a universal identity. In the capsule, there are also accessories such as gloves, shoes, a space headset, and space glasses.

The Inspiration Of Indigo Eden

For thousands of years, many ancient populations have lived on our planet Earth without harming it. It is from this respect for the environment and for future generations that Alessio Berto, owner of the pattern-design studio The Tailor Pattern Support, took
inspiration for this intergenerational and inter-artistic exchange project. Everything comes from a pattern design, based on the characteristics of the materials, creating patterns with organic, engineered, and modern silhouettes.

In the making of these garments, there is no use of water and the raw materials have been chosen for the intelligent use of chemistry, inevitable in the industrial processes of creating materials with technical characteristics. Some of the selected materials will be composed of minerals such as Graphene and rare earths, essential for the technology of the future, or of HMPE much more
resistant than steel, combined with recycled polyesters and metals. These will be paired with natural materials, such as silk, hemp, organic cotton, sugar beet, vegetable gum, potatoes, and corn.

These materials will give the garments general characteristics such as water repellent, cut resistance, thermoregulation, antibacterial, antistatic, and fireproof functions. Each garment will be equipped with an envelope composed of 48% bio-based material. Inside the label, there will be seeds of Moringa, a plant native to India with very high nutritional and healing properties. These seeds will ideally be planted with a view to a future world free from hunger and disease.

Indigo Eden Will Be Available As A Symbol Of A Courageous Change And Inspiration

The Indigo Eden project is presented with a 33 pages PDF file with all the technical specifics as a coherence and transparency demonstration. The garments within this visionary capsule will not be put on the market, they will be available as a symbol of a courageous change and inspiration for other new and intelligent collaborations, directed towards a different future.
