Koto Bolofo’s capsule collection arrives at Anthropologie

New in at Anthropologie is a capsule womenswear collection by photographer Koto Bolofo. The story is quite lovely. Six years ago, Bolofo discovered a stash of vintage linen sheets in rural France. Inspired by the idea of the thoughts, dreams and emotions held in these sheets, the poetic photographer decided to work with a seamstress, upcycling them into clothing to give them a new lease of life. But having made and photographed the clothes, he then packed them away, his creativity fulfilled. Fast forward a few years and one of his clients, Anthropologie gave him carte blanche to realise a creative project. Having dabbled in clothing once before, out came the sheet-clothes again and Bolofo decided to produce a full commercial collection. The results are in store now, faithfully reproduced stitch for stitch, alongside an accompanying book, Dreams, of photographs of his original prototype pieces.
