Multi-Functional Garments: Our Top Picks

In this busy age we live in, multi tasking is an essential part of daily survival. With this in mind, the idea that our clothing should possess multi tasking properties seems a reasonable ask. As we evolve into an ever changing, tech-led landscape, an increasing number of designers are creating intelligent garments that function on more than one level. Not only can this justify high price tags a little more, but also provides some reassurance that our purchases will stand the test of time, not only through quality but with an adaptable, two-way nature.

We have hand picked our favourite multi-functional pieces ahead of Summer, for lighter (and smarter) holiday packing.

Maison Margiela MM6 Women’s Denim Jacket

Keen to travel with a denim jacket but worried it’ll be too hot? Fear not, this deconstructed denim jacket from Margiela’s sub label MM6 features removable sleeves, attached with ribbon, weaving through the back to adjust the fit. The ribbon can be tied loosely for a relaxed cold-shoulder look, or the sleeves can be removed entirely leaving a flattering sleeveless denim vest. Available in two styles: white denim and indigo, this jacket is the definition of effortless cool.
