Mona, Tasmania, Australia
from where you are
A rusty fortress on the edge of a cliff overlooking the Derwent River, an underground bunker of “Old and New Art”, a secular temple of sex and death: the MONA is at the end of the world, in Tasmania. MONA has its own specific ways: owned and designed by professional gambler and multi-millionaire David Walsh, it is the most eccentric and out of this world contemporary art centre one could imagine.
DESCRIPTION These 19th century white dress-shirts, originally meant for men, come from the South of France. Extremely flexible they reflect light and have been used in movies like Gladiator or Lincoln. Made from linen, hemp or nettle, extremely durable, they can live for years. Kilometre reinvents this unique style by adding intricate embroideries with travel destinations on them to create a truly one of a kind piece.
Size: Taille Unique
Fabric: 100% linen
Hand embroidered in Mexico
GOODIES All Kilometre products come with a passport (a travel guide matching the destination of the product + booklet about the brand and its history) and a “second skin”.
All Kilometre products are hand-woven and hand-embroidered, similar to the techniques used to create haute couture. This shirt is made especially for you, so please don’t expect the same production times as fast fashion.
