(di)vision is founded in late 2018 with the ideology of “creating from what already is”(di)vision work in multiple forms of sustainable fashion design and production, mainly in reconstructing, upcycling, cut and sew production and creative sourcing.(di)vision’s collections take inspiration from classic silhouettes with a conceptual and multifunctional DIY aesthetic.
Using only high-quality deadstock fabrics discarded from exclusive designers and existing materials they are trying to break new ground in the fashion industry. (di-) is a word-forming element meaning “two, double, twice,”. In other words (di) can be described as the process of one becoming two. There isn’t a specific definition of what (di)vision stands for - it’s how you see it. Either you take one jacket and make it two or take two thoughts and make it one vision.
The core of (di)vision’s DNA is upcyling and reworking of vintage garments and other surplus materials. From the very beginning this was implemented by using military surplus pilot jackets to create the first versions of the now staple split bomber.(di)vision has continued to expand and explore new products and production methods - now under the line called (di)construct by (di)vision – including the use of vintage workwear, bandanas, flannel shirts.
Two major milestones have been reached regarding (di)vision ambition towards upcycling: Introduced in their AW22 collection, a scaleable cut-and-sew production using vintage t-shirts and introduced in their SS23 collection a denim product line upcycling surplus leg tubes from major fast-fashion brands transforming discarded fabric into new garments.
