Soup: Deconstructing and Reusing with the Berlin-Based Fashion Label
Existing garments, materials and even objects are the starting point for the pieces created by Soup, a fashion label based in Berlin that makes clothes that “reflect our humour and our love of finding things spontaneously”. The brand’s founders or the ‘Soup Girls’ – as they call themselves – use donations from friends, second hand shops or even what they can find on the street to create comfortable, wearable pieces with a recognisable aesthetic. Nothing is out of limits and inspiration for their garments can be found anywhere: “a sensual print or tasty object can be plucked out from an array of shit and embraced into a t-shirt or hoodie!”
Here, the Soup Girls look back at their archive and select some of their favourite pieces to share the stories behind them.
