SOJOURNER + SWEET LIME JUICE

A BRAND NEW HAT SHAPE INTRO

S'L'J: "CAVALIER" have drawn different inspirations from areas such as the fisherman, skateboarding, industrial sun protection and 17th century cavaliers'. The 5 panels at the top has created a better head shape for user to wear and it is more close to the skin. I have extended the brim 2cm longer than standard buckle hat because it can perfectly protect the sunlight not only from your eyes an also covered your cheek. I have also played with the social class ideas back to 17 century cavaliers' hat as it represents upper-class, with the contrast with working-class buckle hat and street wear style "5 panels cap", this approach actually created a new style of everyday wearing and we are happy to play with the concept of blurring class hierarchy .This is why it named as Cavaliers.

SOJOURNER + SWEET LIME JUICE

The most recent hat collaboration project with Sojourner "Cavaliers Savage" is the combination of my signature hat exposes with raw OG patchworks. As Sojourner's identity is about rawness and effortless, we have played around with many different ways of treating the fabric such as burning, scratching, spraying, dying, etc. By destroying parts of the hat considerably has revealed the concept more powerful, such an actual fisherman worker will never wearing a brand new hat with no scratches and marks but in opposite when you look closer, you will see some stitches and patches to cover the damage they made from work. This we think is the hat that represents themselves as a person because it contains the experiences and memories, this is why we admire the aesthetic of adaption from a different situation. We aimed to create a unique hat that represents us that is why we hand treated everything including the patchwork and stitches.
