The Inspiration For The Sundance Kid Collection
Although times are still challenging for all of us, Eat Dust is coming harder than ever this Spring Summer. For their new ‘The Sundance Kid’ collection, they took inspiration from a jazz musician, artist, and writer Marion Brown. He is mostly known for his time in New York during the 1960s, where he played with everyone from Archie Shepp and John Coltrane to Sun Ra and Pharaoh Sanders. Later he would live and record in Europe as well before going back to the States again to continue to play, create, compose and teach music.
Mr. Brown inspired Eat Dust to push boundaries, and to be creative, also in hard times. The outcome is a mind-blowing lookbook that is loaded with a strong fresh collection.
About The New Collection
In the new Spring Summer collection, Eat Dust upgraded and reworked some of its essentials. Next to these, they also introduce some new designs like their Everest smock and the fisherman shirt. Both styles are throw-overs in loose and comfy fits, available in various fabrics, going from jungle green rip-stop to worker blue twill to multicolored Jacquard. They also developed matching Cargo pants or Chino’s so you can wear them as a full suit. Something typical for the Eat Dust brand.
Special Developed Fabrics
Also for this season Eat Dust developed several exclusive fabrics which are made with their mill’s partners. One of those special developments is the Machu Picchu Jacquard. This is an entirely recycled and organic fabric that is used in their Marina shirt, and reversible Malibu jacket for example. The fabric is developed in France, the same as the Hickory stripe cotton fabric which is used for Chino’s, Chore worker jackets, and Western shirts.
Within the collection are also Japanese fabrics, for example, the special Mojave Jacquard. This fabric is used for a few limited-edition styles. They also offer a fine 8oz Japanese Chambray denim fabric, in a bio Stone Wash. Cool and comfortable fabric for warmer Summer days.
They also teamed up with their Portuguese mill for a fresh crispy lightweight rip-stop fabric and a range of naturally dyed hemp t-shirts. Again, they also worked with fabrics from their home country, Belgium, on garment dye cotton twills.
