Who came up with Dirty Deer? Whose brainchild is it?
Dirty Deer was born in the fall of 2010. Originator and chief designer Nocna Mara (Nightmare), who has a passion for solving problems, started the brand to create a solution.
One of the problems in the Polish market at that time was the lack of comfortable clothes made of high quality materials. Passion turned into a mission. The mission was to create clothes that allow people to just “get it, get
dressed and run on.”
Thoughtful designs, rigid rules on what to wear – it’s not for us. Get the clothes from the rack, put them on, and know that you look good.
Please tell us a little about the products you currently make and sell.
The latest collection is MADHOUSE. It’s an affair of streetwear with a grunge design. An alternative version of streetwearu was addressed in the darker side, inspired by the human psyche. They’re classic, with simple forms broken by the raw finish, with discoloration, dyeing, and wrinkles.
Dark fabrics, wool, and shiny nylon are animated by contrasting white strings, drawstring, mesh, and hemlines. Long large hoodie sweatshirts made of fleshy fabric, warm knit pants with deep pockets, and asymmetrical wool jackets are especially suitable options for fall and winter.”
Intriguingly, each piece of hand-dyed and hand-decolourised hooded tunics and hand-dyed capes is unique; no two are the same patterns. In addition to clothes, we just recently started selling accessories. In this collection are trichromatic, mottled backpacks and bags (sack bags) made of cotton denim.
Lastly, tell us how Dirty Deer, as a clothing line, is contributing to the analogue revolution.
Analogue photography is a kind of practice that connects art and craft – it requires patience, precision, time. Similarly, the creation of Deer clothes, the way – from the ideas to the finished products – is long and time-consuming and requires personal care of the designer on each copy. There is no space for mass machine production.
