I thought I would introduce you to a little clothing house called Gibbous.
“modern culture has lost all scent of a soul. mass production & the disposability of fashion & style have ripped away the purity of clothing. sweatshop labor infuses garments with the stench of slavery. we are fighting against this epidemic with needles & thread. we believe clothes can have souls. we believe clothes should really be worn. lovingly mended, kept a lifetime & passed down. they can be dear as an old friend or childhood home.”
Some of their precious things are sold in stores — namely, Twill in Portland & Ruby 2 & Swankety Swank in San Francisco… but it’s easiest to buy online. At the moment they are selling cozy arm-warmers & bonnets — perfect for wriggling into this winter.
Gibbous are selling more than just clothing & accoutrements. They are peddling whimsy & a way of life. Their clothing is infused with the scent of freedom, their photographs are indulgent & fantastical. Everything about Gibbous is delicate & intangible.
I love their aesthetic, I love the messiness & unreality of it. Here are some of their pictures. Feast with your eyes!
Now, go & powder your hair, tear your stockings, & lie in a field somewhere!
