As the creature casts off her coat, leaving behind winter’s protective layer, she trembles, shakes, shrieks, and returns to her downy jacket.
Time to shed a layer? Hell, no. But Tinc designer Savannah Knoop has created the perfect transitional piece for spring.
Tinc’s origami jacket can be transformed each time you wear it. The giant collar folds, wraps around the shoulder, or pulls over your head at the sight of rain. Worn inverted — yep, upside down — it creates a fitted, classic look. Right side up, it’s slightly more casual, even avant-garde.
Tinc’s commitment to low-impact practices like hand-dying are evident in the jacket’s soft bamboo cotton, which helps make it the perfect outer layer as the weather warms.
Or for whenever you feel like a metamorphosis.
