Outi Pyy became inspired by the brutalist architecture of Pasila district in Helsinki for her new collection of wet dyed pieces. Simply titled ”Pasila”, the collection includes a variety of selected second hand clothes for men and women that have been each hand dyed. The prints in each piece are unique.
These wet dyed garments aren’t the first ones Outi Pyy has produced for Remake and some of her earlier work have beared resemlance to Jackson Pollock’s splatter painting in their strong and graphic paint daubs. However, for her new collection Outi decided to try a more mellow approach and she used black dye on the garments in more softer tones, so that they bring into mind the hues and shadowy textures of concrete. You can view more of Outi’s work in her designer portfolio.
Splattering paint on garments may at first seem like an easy task, but actually the procedure requires a lot of research and material testing: the paint shouldn’t be other too liquid or too thick. The dye also reacts to different fibers and textures differently. Materials in the collection are quite inconsistent and vary a lot because like all of Remake products, all of the clothes in “Pasila” are locally sourced from post consumer clothing.
”Pasila” the collection is now available at Remake boutique (Annankatu 13, Helsinki) and Remake online store as well as Weecos online shop. Outi also takes in custom orders if you prefer to have the wet dye or splatter print treatment done on one of your own garments. Please contact us for inquries.
