KATLA X SXD
ABOUT THE COLLABORATION
This hoodie is about reimagining one of the most popular staples in our closets to be as sustainable as possible. Katla's manufacturing process and SXD's design process allow the hoodie to be zero waste, zero compromise. The hoodie also saves 25% of the raw fabric material while featuring a spacious, clean silhouette. Hundreds of millions of hoodies are produced in our industry. Imagine if all hoodies can be made this way. We also wanted as many people as possible to be a part of this movement. The design is made to be versatile across sizes (for all of us with changing bodies) and is genderfluid. We are making the design open source in the back of the hoodie so any curious creator can make their own zero fabric waste version.
SXD (also know as Shelly Xu Design: shellyxu.design) is about maximizing beauty using minimalism. We create artful, versatile and functional clothing that not only produces no waste but also reduces the waste left by the apparel industry. Recently, SXD became the first design startup to win numerous prizes, including the Grand Prize at Harvard's New Venture Competition. SXD and Shelly's work has been featured in Forbes, WWD, InStyle and the recent issue of Harper's Bazaar Japan as a brand Redefining the Fashion Ecosystem.
