Beard & Fringe

Sustainable clothes for couples in love. Totally organic, irresistibly chic!

About the project

 

 Sustainable clothes for couples in love.  Totally organic, irresistibly chic! 

Sylvain & Gil Machac are brothers.They have one thing in common, they love beautiful stories. And here is the one they wish to tell you through Beard&Fringe.

 This adventure began precisely in  September 2014. Since the very beginning, Sylvain & Gil have been keen to engage their clients in a lively, sincere, solution-focused approach, In order to build a better present & future both for us and our descendants

 Because indeed, when wearing a garment, we wear a Story:

Everything begins with farmers planting seeds, men and women, spinning, weaving, handling, transporting; stylists imagining and drawing, tailors and dressmakers pinning and sewing... 

And all this is included in the story that you & us wear every day.

For this first collection, Sylvain & Gil wished to dress their friends and especially the couples in love that surround them. They imagined these couples of all kinds in a resolutely urban style tinged with sportswear, with a touch of Scandinavian design. 

They chose to take inspiration from the story of the love encounter and created three lines of clothing for three moments that highlight the encounter:

the first look at the beach,

the first moment of complicity during the 'before party'

and the first physical contact on the dance floor

To illustrate the collection, they photographed couples, their friends, and asked them to tell their stories, to narratehow they they fell in love.

To give the final touch to the message they want to convey with Beard&Fringe Sylvain & Gil have conceived original prints that define the Fringe Woman & the Beard Man.

   As for this year's Fringe woman, the prints evoke digital communication, the Internet, the databases. The design is inspired by the large data visualization graphics, the 'big data'.

                                       

As for the Beard man, the prints evoke the nature, particularly the mountains, the topographic map of the French Alps. The design is printed on the entire garment either in slots or in repetitions.

                                       

To conclude with a meaningful symbol... their logo represents an '&' and a pair of mixed, mingled scissors: an 'accessory' that takes the form of a garment & embodies the values they wish to convey through Beard&Fringe: encounter, exchange,sharing, bonding…

                                                     

The symbol of the intimate conviction that 1 + 1 = 3, that the interaction makes us evolve and progress.

 

 It took them 2 years to establish a respectful chain. All their fabrics and accessories (buttons, cords, threads) are biological, sustainable and ethical.

All their fabrics and accessories (buttons, cords, threads) are biological, sustainable and ethical. They only use GOTS* labelled cotton, organic and Fairtrade-labelled linen and hemp. All the raw materials used are found in Europe, just as all the stages of the manufacturing process they have designed are taking place in Europe in order to minimize their carbon
impact. They strive to improve them constantly in every way possible.

 When wearing, Beard&Fringe, you are guaranteed the sustainability of the use of their clothes and the awareness that these have only positive impact on you as well as in all of their social and environmental manufacturing process. So that every day we can be proud, beautiful, dressed comfortably, aesthetically and ethically. A beautiful story that we will wear and convey whenever we are dressed in

What are the funds for?

We wish to commercialize this first collection of Beard & Fringe through Ulule by offering 2 formulas: The 1st, "Unique" with the prices without reduction for the individual pieces, the 2nd, "Matched"with a 40% reduction on the packages choose  

Repartition : "Matched" :

                        

Repartition : "Unique"

                           

 

The principle of 'pre-order' implied by 'crowedfunding' approach resonates with the approach that Sylvain & Gil have initiated. By only producing the volume of parts sold, they eliminate the waste & the stock inherent in the fashion industry.
Sylvain & Gil will extend this marketing method to 'pre-order' when launching their website at the time of their second collection in 2018. 

With the funds raised we would like to buy a tool for patterning and digital cutting to offer products in half measure and develop our e-commerce website to sell only our clothes on the Internet, by pre-orders, to limit unsold and stock, to limit the waste.
