“Edition11 will be our sole collection of 2022 – we believe this is more appropriate for the times we live in and the world we want to see around us. By releasing only one collection this year, we want to lead by example and show that it is a necessity to make less but better products. To be better, we will share our knowledge on responsible textile creation and production and provide the platform, resources and knowledge to enable this,” Borre Akkersdijk, CCO and Co-Founder at BYBORRE said.

Giving stage to creators

BYBORRE also aims to provide a platform for artists and creators through its BYBORRE Create Platform. For Edition11 the team invited Amsterdam born and raised artist dewy Elsinga aka ‘BUTTERFINGAZ’ to play on the BYBORRE Create platform and explore a new way of expressing her work, through textiles. Her signature bold, hand drawn brushstrokes have been integrated into a knitted textile, resulting in garments that look as if she has literally taken her brush directly to them.

Using bold colours, following her outspoken style, this Edition pushes the palette of the BYBORRE textiles beyond what the team have explored in the past. To support this bold Artists Multicolour textile the other textiles in the Edition come in different hues of black/grey and black/blue.

Reengineered patterns from the ground up

Where BYBORRE approached its Edition10 as a look back, reinterpreting some of its greatest hits over the year, Edition11 is a logical follow up from that.

For Edition11 the team took a hard look at some of its core styles and streamlined them, with the aim to cleverly simplify them for production, but without losing what makes them so special in the first place. Looking at lines and seams, and developing new base blocks, key BYBORRE styles such as the Weightmap Sweater, the Tapered Cropped Pants and the Hoodie see a complete overhaul. This Edition also introduces the all-new N-Type Jacket and Studio Jacket and a further exploration into home goods.

This overhaul of existing silhouettes led to new constructions meant to give the stage to the textiles by taking away ‘design distraction’ that focuses on lines and seams.

The introduction period starts the 1st of February and runs until the 18th of February 2022. If you are a retailer, brand or member of the press you can book your slot to be virtually introduced to this Edition and its latest textile innovations.
