Katalyst Selvedge Overshirt$320
For our pop-up exhibition with Katalyst it was only fitting for us to develop a new product together. Previously the Paddington Hat proved a winner but this time the increased partnership required something more substantial.
After some planning it was the discovery of a unique selvedge raw cotton that really inspired our next move. This fabric is both luxurious & unpretentious. At a glance it could be mistaken for the ubiquitous "DIY" calico choice but upon closer inspection you'll notice the slubby texture, heavy weight & undeniably cool selvedge finish.
A fabric like this has too much character to simply become an accessory so this is where the Selvedge Overshirt came from. Based on the staple Katalyst Box Blouse, the shape has been tweaked to be happier as a top layer & the sleeves have grown to be full length.
As with anything that has the CONTRA name, details are subtle & plentiful. Like our previous Katalyst collabs this has been made from a limited amount of fabric so numbers are restricted to only 4 pieces, made across 3 sizes. Once these are gone that'll be it.
