Edition11™ — End of an era

Dropping Edition11™, BYBORRE showcases the last collection of its in-house label Editions™.

Since 2015, BYBORRE has actively challenged the textile industry to do better, create more consciously and be transparent about how the industry operates. The company has opened up the conversation by showcasing what is possible on a textile and garment level through their in-house label Editions™. Now it is time to move forward.

In 2022, BYBORRE reviewed Editions’ role as an instrument for industry change. The company’s mission to 'educate a generation of conscious creators' is not limited to textile manufacturing and composition alone, but includes educating and activating creators on all levels of the process, from yarn to textile to product. 

Editions™ served as  BYBORRE’s showcase for the future of the industry, to prove that any brand could control its entire supply chain and environmental footprint, while creating products with a brand-aligned aesthetic.

With this in mind, Edition11™ is BYBORRE’s last collection as you know it. They believe this to be more appropriate for the times we live in and the change they are committed to. As they constantly seek out the best way to achieve their mission, everything they mastered through Editions™ is now accessible on their textile design platform BYBORRE Create™.

ABOUT EDITION11™ – GIVING STAGE TO CREATORS

For Edition11™, the team invited Amsterdam-born and raised artist Dewy Elsinga aka ‘BUTTERFINGAZ’ to design on BYBORRE Create™ and explore a new way of expressing her work through textiles. Her signature bold, hand-drawn brush strokes were integrated into a knitted textile, resulting in garments that look as if she has literally taken her brush directly to them. 

 

Using bold colors, following her outspoken style, this Edition pushes the palette of BYBORRE textiles beyond what the team explored in the past. To support this bold Artists Multicolour textile, all other textiles in the Edition come in different hues of black/gray and black/blue.

REENGINEERED PATTERNS FROM THE GROUND UP

Where BYBORRE approached Edition10™ as looking back and reinterpreting some of their greatest hits over the year, Edition11™ is a grande finale.

For this final collection, the team took a hard look at some of their core styles and streamlined them, with the aim to cleverly simplify them for production, but without losing what makes them so special in the first place. Looking at lines and seams, and developing new base blocks, key BYBORRE styles such as the Weightmap Sweater, the Tapered Cropped Pants and the Hoodie see a complete overhaul. This Edition also introduces the all new N-Type Jacket and Studio Jacket and a further exploration into home goods. 

This overhaul of existing silhouettes led to new constructions meant to give the stage to the textiles by taking away ‘design distraction’ that focuses on lines and seams.
