Based in Tel Aviv and London, fashion collective Muslin Brothers offers genderless and often no sizing clothes. Men and women can wear dresses or trousers, loose silhouettes are completed by the user’s figure and personal decision to interact with the garment.
Founded in 2011 by Tamar Levit and Yaen Levi, the Muslin Brothers main inspiration is as diverse as the creative duo’s background and base. Levit and Levi perceive clothes as a way to communicate and challenge society, whilst keeping the creations playful, ironic and unconventional. The brand’s name is a pun which refers to the fabric widely used in the Orient; as well as the infamous terrorist organization.
Despite being one of the youngest Israeli fashion brands, the label has celebrated success abroad for its extravagance, freshness and conceptual approach.
The Muslin Brothers’ annual theme is an emotional documentary of city life; ethno-social groups that are defined and altered by the local urban surrounding encounters… this rough spread rubs and shapes the city’s contemporary natives. The collection includes original prints made with footage of Tel Aviv’s streets surfaces; scanning and skinning the ground textures and graphics into original pieces. Unusual cuts and mixed disciplinary materials craft looks for both men and woman in a unisex collection.
The collection which was shown at Gindi Tel Aviv Fashion Week, is supported by Pais Israel Foundation. With head-gear made with collaboration with Czech designer, based in Prague, Sofya Samareva.
