We set out to make a simple skirt, but in the process ended up making a unique unisex piece with multiple methods to wear. Our personal favourite part of the skirt is its ability to pair (literally) with any pant through the use of the “Pant Sync System”.
In the previous part, I said I was about to have a critical conversation with myself about whether and how to execute Garuda. I lied, what I meant was I was going to sit down, apply questionable logic and figure out how to brute force my way through making a cohesive brand while only releasing a few items a year.
What started as a personal challenge turned into Garuda’s best seller. We are proud to see Hene’s Hat all over the world in different countries and climates worn by people of different walks of life.
Noragi V1 is Garuda’s take on a Japanese workwear classic. When we initially thought of making the Noragi we felt we were pandering to demand and didn’t want to make it honestly. However, we decided to at least sample it and see if we could make something exceptional and worth releasing… and we did! A modern fit with movement, 3 ways to close, and the option to sling it on your back. Worth releasing for sure!
What is Udaan pant V3? The Udaan V1 were the second pant Garuda released at the start of 2017. The main goal was to create a pant that served as the opposite of the Sipahi pant, a wider cropped cargo pant to counter the Sipahi’s slim stacking.
