“Sea levels are rising and if climate change continues, Amsterdam will be completely engulfed by the year 2300.”
This colourful embroidered bralette is inspired by the ‘Dutch Drift’ against water. The Dutch are experts in water management and monitor water levels in every river, canal or lake. Our drift against rising sea levels has been a fight to control the waters around us for centuries. The colourful bars on the left cup of this garment embody a graph of water levels in the Amsterdam canals during heavy rain in 2017. The embroidery of the right cup is derived from a graph of water levels in the Boezemgemalen (water pump stations) during that same heavy rain.
The Water Drift Collection depicts dry feet should not be taken for granted in The Netherlands, as soon the rising sea levels will be uncontrollable.
Every pattern piece is carefully embroidered separately and aligned on tulle so the graph is not disturbed. The embroidery strengthens the tulle for extra support envisioning our philosophy of balancing aesthetics and comfort. The elastic band is fully adjustable for a perfect fit.
The sizes are in EU sizing. If you are not sure what your EU size is please check out our size chart in the main menu.
