Returning to Meridian for the SS'23 season, Earth\Studies is an experimental clothing project with origins in the Pacific Northwest creating products that serve as tools for people to explore their world with curiosity, creativity and expression. Earth\Studies projects take inspiration from landscapes, geologies and atmospheres to unlock a collaborative expression between human and non-human creativities. Earth tones and natural hues shape color decisions. The textures of sweeping landscapes are expressed with asymmetric fabric composition. The evidence of human influence is reflected in a mix of synthetic and natural materials. This expression of the ‘natural’ confronts the construct of the utilitarian. In this way Earth\Studies projects reveal the emotion and beauty found on Earth.
