Geoffrey B. Small founded his label in Boston in 1979 and has since moved his studio to a small town in Italy, where all his products are fully handmade using local techniques. He is considered one of the leading figures in the world of avant-garde and artisanal fashion. Various designers like John Alexander Skelton, Archivio J.M Ribot, Ziggy Chen and Uma Wang have been inspired by him and his designs. B. Small manages to stay out of the fashion circle/ industry and works completely independently. Adding to that, he started very early to consider his environmental impact and tries to use only environmentally friendly fabrics and techniques. He was also the first in the world to present a fully recycled collection.
Geoffrey B. Small´s standard of quality is unmatched within the fashion world. His pieces are fully handmade from the most luxurious materials, to create, what are probably the best clothes in the world. All of this is combined with a totally unique aesthetic, which is mainly inspired by garments from the early 20th century but not limited to that.
B. Small produces less than 500 unique pieces per season, all of them handmade from natural fabrics. Most of his pieces exist only a few times and are only available with one retailer. This piece is unique.
This specific trouser is from B. Small´s Fall/Winter 2001 collection and it is a recycled piece, made up from various existing garments. Therefore it is unique. The trousers have a beautiful micro-pattern and leather detailing at the waist and back pockets. Adding to that, they have a huge turn-up with a contrasting lining. As always, the garment is beautifully constructed and of the highest quality.
