The Quiet Life join forces with UK based outdoor lifestyle store Watershed to present their ‘Glass and Sew’ collaboration.
Since its inception back in 2011, Watershed store have worked to provide their consumer base with unique product that is hard to find anywhere else, as well as developing their own surf range to fulfil demand for boards made to tackle UK waves. The ‘Glass and Sew’ collaboration combines The Quiet Life’s focus on unique materials and fabrics, with Watershed’s expertise within surfing and surf board design.
Watershed co founders – James Wright & Jake Patterson said this on the collection;
“Working with The Quiet Life has allowed us to take the glass and sew concept a step further. The opportunity to create a full range with such an established and influential brand has been absolutely amazing”.
The collection consists of graphic raglan-sleeved tees and hoodies, as well as cut and sew items in the short sleeve woven shirts and beach shorts. Headwear selections include a printed bucket hat, 5 panel and 6 panel. The collections surf theme is really brought to life through four customer designed surfboard’s two made in the UK and two in California.
Andy Mueller of The Quiet Life had this to say;
“Working with Watershed was great because it was a true collaboration – both Quiet Life and Watershed brought ideas to each other and we worked well together as a group to make each other’s ideas stronger and unified. It was a fun project as it involved all of my favourite things – creating new graphics, developing a unique cut and sew collection, and introducing two new garments to Quiet Life – the beach zip up and the beach shorts”.
To celebrate the collaboration, Watershed will be taking their concept store to London’s Boxpark from the 14th up until the 20th of July. The collection will be sitting alongside Watershed’s own range and The Quiet Life’s latest release.
