The lookbook Blemished shows a collection of three inverted worn pair of jeans. Based on an approach to understand the history of coloring garments and the invention of trousers, the collection inverts the process of dying jeans.
By tracing the dyestuff indigo, which had been lost through the use of the jeans (sitting, bending and keeping objects in their pockets), pigments were used to redraw these patterns on the model’s bodies. This recovery idea of the lookbook is reflected in the title Blemished that is printed with the same loose pigments.
While going through the lookbook, the reader spreads the blue color all over leaving the traces of his usage visible.
