The skin is the largest organ of the human body, serving as a primary defence, a sensory and an excretory medium. Its semi permeable nature plays an important role which coordinates the function of our whole body. Therefore, what we put on and next to our skin can have a direct impact, as such, our health is shaped by our environment. SKIN SERIES™ explores the interaction between our clothing and the skin looking towards a future where the body and materials are considered simultaneously. Rosie Broadhead, the brand's founder, focuses on developing materials that provide health benefits to the skin.
This series of undergarments are designed with SKIN SERIES™ textiles embedded with bioactive ingredients with known therapeutic benefits to the skin and body. Such properties have the potential to improve the immune system of your skin, encourage cell renewal, and hold antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
The focus is on looking at what is natural on our bodies to explore how we can create responsible yet functional clothing. Highlighting the bodies intimate relationship with the skin as this permeable membrane between the self and world.
