“During my research I found out that there are mountains on other planets, including Mars. In fact, the three largest mountains in the universe are on Mars. The items I made are all inspired by the EVA space suit and by original details of The North Face’s Himalayan Suit. Together they tell the future story of the first person to climb the biggest planetary mountain in the universe called Olympus Mons.”
The future of exploration to me is constantly reinventing yourself. I think it’s really important that we think about sustainability, that we learn how we can make new items from things that already exist. Everything is inspired by a spacesuit, the Eva suit, and also by original details from The North Face. I think I gave them a second chance by not only giving them a new function but also I think I gave them a story.
Her inspiration was out of this world, but her modus operandi was more grounded. She created six new pieces from 12 old pieces combining different fabrics and details adding further functionality and utility. But she also gave them a story, which she feels brings more added value.
Sammy believes it's important when thinking about sustainability to constantly reinvent and improve things, to make new things out of items that already exist, rather than starting from scratch and creating waste.
