Bolota studio is a made in Portugal project, created by Felícia Macedo during quarantine 2020.
Denim assumes a main role on a relaxed but bold aesthetics, where each garment is designed for people and not for genders. More than just design, Bolota studio also favors social and environmental awareness. A collection is made by a whole and recognizing the names behind each garment, from the fabric supplier to the sewing process is one of the steps to a more conscious consume.
I ERR, THEREFORE I AM
"Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better"
In science is common practice that failure is essential for success and there are much to learn from the experiments that don’t work as those that do. In a year that we have experienced a large spectrum of feelings that made us question about everything, it’s time to embrace the failure by using the error as a tool and taking advantage of that. It's mandatory to think about the planet and question our behavior as consumers.
In that way, this collection it’s kind of a treasure hunting, from re-using the beads from teenager times, the safety pins from our mother’s sewing box, old fabrics collected during school along with stocks from Portuguese suppliers.
Genderless denim silhouettes are upgraded with crochet details by the hands of Croc Pot aka Alexandre Pereira, a very special collaboration.
