The Mimetic collection is a collaboration between product designer Old Boy and the recycling Fade Out Label. The core of the collab are denim patchworks combined with vintage military items. Various shades of blue vintage denim and multiple army green textures form geometric collages and create a mini collection of four garments, oversized in ft, heavy in weight and creative in style. The material is of extremely high quality, so many original details like buttons, cords and zippers have been kept from the army bags and tents. The garments are repeatable but are to be considered as one off a kinds. All garments are hand made with taste and patience, it takes up to 12 hours for one piece. The collab is created in the Fade Out Label’s atelier in Berlin. The Mimetic collection is available in two sizes through
