D*Face (interviewed) sent us these great pictures taken on a warm and sunny day in London last week by photographer Viktor Vauthier. What better way to spend an afternoon than with a couple of girls armed with super-soakers? You can bet that we wouldn’t look quite so good in one of these new tees just released in D’s store, but at least we might feel good, as both shirts are made from 100% recycled plastic bottles.
According to D*Face, the bottles are stripped of their labels and caps, washed, and crushed, then chopped into flake. These tiny pieces are melted and extruded to create fibre. The fibre produced is crimped, cut, drawn and stretched into the desired length for strength, then baled. The baled fibre can be processed into fabric for a variety of textile product uses. Sounds simple, but i‘ve no idea how this actually works, but somehow it does.
More hot flicks from Viktor after the jump.
