NEW ARRIVAL

CEDRIC JACQUEMYN is now available!

Hello.

It is still hot in Tokyo. I am so tired of this heat. Aren’t we all ready for nice fall cool breath? I know I am.

 

Today’s birthday flower is Hibiscus Mutabilis, also known as Confederate Rose. The traditional flower meaning is “Delicate Beauty”. It reminded me of a certain brand, who is expert working with delicate natural materials, offers a conscious take on its fragility, and creates beautiful garments: 

CEDRIC JACQUEMYN

 

Remember, everything is locally made in Antwerp!

First beautiful material used is Virgin Wool 100%.

Virgin wool is known to be very soft and fine. It can be used to identify the wool one gets from shearing an adult lamb for the first time.

The difference between the virgin wool and regular wool is that wool can be made from recycled existed wool fabric, where as virgin wool is not previously been processed or woven. So they are much more limited and rare.

Next items are very interesting. The outer fabric is a mixture of virgin wool and linen. By adding linen into virgin wool, it gave stiffness into a fabric. So the silhouette is more sharp.

Both jacket and coat is padded and he purposely have the cotton waddings come out from the seams which gives accent to black garments.

Next I am going to introduce you to Cedric Jacquelyn Necklaces. 

Cedric, the designer himself is concern about the environmental issues, and  this collection is inspired by it as well.  He captured the beauty of the natural power and on opposite, the threat of environmental destruction.

Both necklaces idea came from the direct consequences of global warming and the Svalbard Global Seed Vault: 

A giant vault located deep in the permafrost on the island of Spitsbergen, storing about half a million crops, meant to protect the world’s crop diversity from natural or manmade disasters. 

二つの商品は地球温暖化とスヴァールバル世界種子貯蔵庫 (Svalbard Global Seed Vault)からアイディアを得てデザインされています。

「スヴァールバル世界種子貯蔵庫」はノルウェー領スヴァールバル諸島にある、ビル・ゲイツ主導のもと、地球上の種子を冷凍保存する世界最大の施設種子銀行です。

今後さまざまに予想される深刻な気候変動や自然災害の農作物種の絶滅を防ぎ、世界各地での地域的絶滅があった際には栽培再開の機会を提供することを目的としています。

This necklace is copper time capsule containing ash from the Icelandic Eyjafjnallajokull volcano: 

The duality of carrying around fertility, a cure for destruction, a talisman for renewal. 

But at the same it can be seen as the incarnation of one of the most destructive forces known to men…

こちらは銅で出来たタイムカプセルで、アイスランドの氷山、エイヤフィヤトラヨークトルで起こった火山噴火の灰が詰めてあります。「繁殖」と「破壊」の双対の意味を込めた復活のお守りでもあり、同時に人間により破壊された自然の化身であるという想いで作られています。

If all the ice would melt, even this vault can’t protect us from losing the biodiversity…

To translate Cedric’s concern: He put seedlings into a small vault-looking protective space. So we can carry them with us, trying to protect what remains…

地球温暖化が進み氷が溶けてしまうと、スヴァールバル世界種子貯蔵庫だけでは生物多様性を守れることが出来ない可能性があります。

小さな種子貯蔵庫にシードリング(植物の種子から芽が出たばかりの状態)を埋め込み、いつでも「守る」想いを忘れないように、こちらのネックレスを制作しました。

 

After reading the Cedric’s notes which came with the necklaces, I started to think it is our duty, as well, to not forget how serious environmental destruction can threat us. It could happen anywhere anytime in the world. I decided to translate the note into Japanese, so more people in our country will feel what Cedric Jacquemyn is trying to tell us.
