I’m excited to announce a new launch for Hitokoo Etsy on- line shop on June 25th, featuring the S/S 2013 Hive Collection. The first 10 purchases from the new site will receive 15% off, first come first serve. From June 25- August 25, 2013, I will post a new item everyday for the duration of the promotion and celebrate with a summer promotion giveaway on the blog, so stay tuned!
The Hive Collection is cut from sustainable bamboo fabrics, and executed with fine craftmanship for an alternative choice for simple elegant expression.
HITOKOO hand crafted fine clothing and accessories are made in Hamilton, ON in small run production.
Hive is a series of clothing that explores the internal struggle of the obligated worker as disenchanted proletariat. In the struggle to transgress beyond socially and self-constructed barriers in employment and class, race and gender, one navigates through unchartered waters of self-determined and self-defined meaning-making in work and service towards an opening path of empowerment, healing and emancipation.
Throughout this series, I employ the motif of the honeycomb cell, in a repetitive pattern, to represent creation or labour of the worker “bee”. A honey splattered constellation moves across the honeycomb seams like a milky way of stars navigating a course towards freedom.
