Tender is a one man brand based in England and the founder William Kroll continues to make beautiful clothes inspired by the history of durable workwear with a contemporary style.
What we appreciate when it comes to the aesthetics of Tender is that the appearance may look simple at first, but William is always adding smart and interesting details to the garments, combined with interesting textiles that feel great to wear. As far as possible all products are produced in England, from the weaving of the fabrics to cutting and sewing.
The Zoetrope coat is the result of a playful thinking and pattern making, and the garment is made with a total of ten pieces of fabric. panels are narrow at the top of the garment and widens towards the hem, which gives the jacket a beautiful A-line shape that is easy to wear. The sleeves are made with a raglan construction that follows the shape of the shoulder in a great way. The front of the jacket has two pockets and which are reinforced with copper dome rivets at the corners. All seams on the inside are either folded or covered with a thin cotton fabric.
This jacket is dyed with Prussian blue, a pigment discovered in around 1704 in Berlin by the chemist Johann Jacob Diesbach.
The pigment is derived from an iron salt and gives an intense, slightly red-cast blue color. it was also used in paintings and can be found in "Starry Night" painted by Vincent Van Gogh and "The Great Wave" by Katsushika Hokusai.
Prussian blue is less predictable than modern synthetic dyes and it's color transfer, inconsistency, irregularity and fading are some of the beautiful natural characteristics of this pigment.
