(Re)thinking Global: Tender Co.

UK-based designer William Kroll brings history and integrity to our daily lives with Tender Co, an always evolving collection of workwear pieces adopted and adapted from Industrial Revolution-era garment construction, materials, and aesthetics.

Our series “Fashion Going Forward” is about understanding how this time of isolation and ambiguity is changing the lives and work of the brands and designers we work with at Pylon. Today, we hear from Berlin-based multidisciplinary designer Nadine Goepfert.  “To me, environment is still the most important protagonist,” she began. “If we want to reduce the impact of fashion on the environment we will need to change production methods but also our consumption behavior.
