YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT

Described as a “novel eating initiative and experience,” De Culinaire Werkplaats draws inspiration from seemingly unrelated sources, from architecture to emotions. “Taste the Unwearables,” a series of fabrics made from vegetables, fruits, and herbs, is part call to eat more greens, part commentary on the ephemeral nature of fashion.

The collection is part call to eat more greens, part commentary on the ephemeral nature of fashion.

“Food equals fashion, what you eat and what you wear reveals who you are or want to be,” say Wintjes and Meursing. The edible garments also allude to the vulnerability of our ecosystem. “Every meal consists of choices which affect people, animals and environment,” the designers add. “This can also be said about fashion.”

Playful and strikingly beautiful, the collection brings a whole new meaning to the old adage, “you are what you eat.”
