deconstruction - analysis - experimentation
A Wardrobe for the Posthuman man. A man with heightened awareness and direction searching for meaning in this hyper-reality called existence. He exists on a plane above the consumer-signs-ocean of the ordinary where regular humans drown in their search for identity.
All articles are engineered from our uniquely scientific philosophy and every line, every cut, every stitch is a product of this philosophy.
“Strength of design lies not in the decisions we make but in the reasons behind those decisions. If you understand why you do what you do - then your art will always be powerful. Others may not like it, but it will have the strength to defend itself - it will have integrity and it will sustain.”
London based pharmaceutical scientist turned designer; Nimesh Gadhia designs analytically and experimentally rather than aesthetically. By deconstructing the logic of menswear and applying his unique scientific philosophy, Posthuman Wardrobe creates architectural menswear with clean lines, considered detailing and 3d functionality.
Gadhia gained his credentials working on Savile Row for the likes of Ozwald Boateng and Vacher & Jacobs.
He left the University of Westminster in 2006 with a Masters degree in Fashion Design and Enterprise having explored notions of the analysis of movement and its effects on the functional requirements of traditional menswear construction.
Gadhia’s unique vision of combining bespoke tailoring techniques with functional sportswear lead him to the multi-award winning impact protection technology brand - d3o, where he designed for various sports brands including Helly Hansen, Puma and Quiksilver.
Posthuman Wardrobe was born in 2009 out of the same Scientific Philosophy which continues to define its aesthetic and Identity to date. 2010 saw the addition of Laura Jones to the company.
Having worked for the likes of Vivienne Westwood, Nicole Farhi and Qasimi, Jones helped to refine Posthuman Wardrobe by adding a commercial element to compliment the conceptual aspect of the brand. Having shown twice at London Fashion Week (including on The Ones To Watch Stage in September 2011) and twice in Paris (once at the MAN SHOW and again at Tranoi), Posthuman Wardrobe continues to develop its brand every season with passion and determination. It showcases each collection, refining its concept and expanding both its stockists and customer following.
