qi | clothing collection
Mass consumption has irreparable consequences for our environment. Moreover it prevents an authentic connection from us to our material world.
The biodegradable collection qi by wholina (Julina Vanille Bezold) has its roots in a holistic design manifesto inspired by the ancient Chinese philosophy Wu-Xing. The garments come from plants, live with us and will eventually decompose one day, enabling a new plant to grow from it.
By distinguishing fashion and garments, qi attempts to create a new awareness for the appreciation of clothing. They are our second skin, in which we are wrapped most of our lives.
