Airei Fall Winter 2023 – 2024 at Paris Men’s Fashion Week

“This collection documents the journey of the protector. It’s about infusing the call to adventure with the confidence to immerse yourself in acts of service and community. The journey of the protectors starts with refuge, a safe harbor. The deluge follows, representing the trials and tribulations that test protectors and heroes alike. As the journey of protectors continues, they become a defector of norms and expectations, a transfuge from the known to the unknown.”

Airei Fall Winter 2023 – 2024, Through the materials, designs and collaborators, each part of the collection exemplifies protective and heroic themes:

– Human hair from Matter of Trust, a San-Francisco based nonprofit using human hair to fight oil spill disasters, is incorporated through one-of-a-kind jackets, pants and shirts

– Dunlop clogs and rubber boots, made for oil rig workers, are customized and feature a durable exterior of rubber pulled from vehicle tires

– For the first time, AIREI introduces leather this season ( Airei Fall Winter 2023 ) through a collaboration with CHURCHILL, a 130-year-old work glove manufacturer. Salmon leather, recycled from waste from sushi restaurants in France, is used to create jackets and pants

– ASICS sneakers have been customized in a coat of plaster, eventually breaking down through movement and usage

– Protection and fragility are contrasted in the “Rip” shirt and hoodie. The pieces allow the wearer to tear open the front of the shirt to unveil the placket hiding beneath

– Freehand stitching techniques are implemented in the chainlink jackets, pants and shorts, creating one-of-a-kind patterns
