monthly inspiration

pioneering architect: zaha hadid

earlier this month, zaha hadid architects and the eth zurich co-created a 3D knitted concrete pavilion. the prototype has shown the world how additive manufacturing technology can blend into our daily lives, and how the innovative architect has left her legacy in transforming and re-defining design innovation.

zaha hadid had been an inspiration for us with her ground-breaking projects and perfectionistic attitude toward her work.

we at resonate deeply with her principles and strive for "zero inventory" with the same philosophy.

"i will never give myself the luxury of thinking 'i've made it.'
i'm not the same as i was 20 years ago, i always set the bar higher." -zaha hadid

set the bar higher with us. let's strive for a better apparel industry together. 

stay tuned for more adventures to come.
