ROBERT FALCON SCOTT: VOYAGE TO ANTARTICA
AW/2020 GENDER NEUTRAL
Robert Falcon Scott: Voyage to Antarctica AW/2020 was Basmah’s first Second-Year design project that was inspired by Scott’s courageous Arctic expedition in the early 20th Century. Basmah experimented with traditional Menswear and Womenswear tailoring techniques and investigated them in new and innovative ways, to produce a gender-neutral outfit of a deconstructed, detachable hooded jacket and cargo inspired tailored trousers. All fabrics in this outfit are dead-stock as well as buttons, and toggles that are made from recycled materials such as coconuts.
