MONTAGUE X GENTLE MONSTER

CLAIMING DARK GLASSES AS TODAY'S GUISE OF MODERN ARMOUR, MONTAGUE DIGS INTO THE ARMORIAL CODES OF MEDIEVAL EUROPE FOR THE EXCLUSIVE COLLABORATION MONTAGUE X GENTLE MONSTER.

IN MEDIEVAL EUROPE, A WIDOW WOULD CONTINUE TO BEAR THE ARMS OF HER LATE HUSBAND. WITH HER OWN ARMS IMPALED, IT WAS A SYMBOL OF STATUS, A FAMILY LEGACY, CARRIED DOWN FROM ONE GENERATION TO THE NEXT. 

THIS LEGACY, REFERRING TO THE EVERLASTING RAW REMNANT, IS THE MOTIF OF THE CHIEF & WIDOW LINE BY MONTAGUE, DESIGNED WITH THE NATURAL FORM OF DEER JAWBONE. 

IN COLLABORATION WITH GENTLE MONSTER, FRAGMENTS OF THE ACTUAL BONE ARE RECREATED IN BONE CHINA, THE TRADITIONAL TECHNIQUE TO MIX EARTH AND BONE ASH. 

A HANDMADE LIMITED EDITION OF WIDOW AND HEIRESS GOLD ARE AVAILABLE EXCLUSIVELY AT GENTLE MONSTER.
