DE­SIGNER Q&A

NOW Magazine - BUZZ Fall Fashion Guide - - Style Notes -

Lots of lines la­bel them­selves “uni­sex,” but Paige Cowan, Mel Sinclair and Meg Sinclair have cre­ated a col­lec­tion of jack­ets, T-shirts and trousers that is gen­uinely gen­derneu­tral. In­tro­duc­ing Mut­ton­head (mut­ton­head­col­lec­tive.com). Who is Mut­ton­head? Mut­ton­head is made up of three mutts. We each have our own roles and re­spon­si­bil­i­ties, but Mut­ton­head is a mix of all of our skills com­bined with what we be­lieve is miss­ing in Cana­dian fash­ion: lo­cally made, func­tional and qual­ity gar­ments for both men and women. What are Mut­ton­head fans wear­ing this sea­son? For the fall 2011 col­lec­tion we used a re­cy­cled hemp fab­ric for our trousers and dress shirts. It’s wear­able, com­fort­able and durable. We also try to de­sign ac­ces­sories com­pletely made from scraps, and this sea­son we did a pouch wal­let and are work­ing on a five-panel hat. Any hints about your next col­lec­tion? We love sup­port­ing and work­ing with other lo­cal brands and artists and have some amaz­ing col­lab­o­ra­tions in the works!
