PAST

These trousers were adopted by the Italian Navy for troops and cadets, while on board and in ranks.

They were made with an extremely strong 100% cotton fabric.

They were also used during regattas and boat rides where it was very important for cadets to wear strong and practical garments.

The Italian Navy introduced these trousers around the end of 1970’s.

MAKING OF


 
IM8D_B_SACHET.jpg
 

MYAR commitment is to bring back to life past used military garments that have been stocked for long time in darkened warehouse, bringing back the light in the present time, for a second life in a civil environment. 

The up-cycling process involving MYAR is not only an aesthetic intervention but also a process of historical knowledge

On each garment is applied a QR code that, once scanned, will tell the historical origin of the piece and the type of workmanship that has been made.

This process of customization is also witnessed by a small white cloth sachet containing scraps of fabrics: a part of the past of this garment, which has been modified from the original to be worn today for the future coming.
