Taking Industrial Materials to the Next Level: IVANKA Concrete Fashion Line
This post is dedicated to all of you out there with a strange passion for… concrete. We’ve seen many examples of concrete furniture on Freshome, it is time to take it up a notch and present this incredible fashion line by Budapest-based design company IVANKA. According to the studio’s official description, their entire work is based on the versatile nature of CONCRETE, “main material chosen for creative expression through discovering unexplored attributes”. Concrete Genezis is the name of this new clothing collection presented in the photos below and based on a new textile that mimics the look of the industrial material.
Most of the designs presented by IVANKA consist of a merger between actual concrete and genuine leather: “Formerly strangers to one another, the introduction between these two materials translates beautifully into these eye-catching and wearable must-have items”. The idea for the intriguing clothing line hit founders Katalin Ivanka and Andras Ivanka during a photo shooting session in which they wore clothing that had been dipped in concrete and then allowed to dry.
