Mosen x Wixii


The Message - A collaboration between Ash Mosen & Wixii Vintage 


A Message is the ability to convey meaning, yet it exists whether sentience is present or not, in plain sight or hidden under soils like a mycelium undergrowth. This Message though, is one you've felt before, both simple and intensely complex; it is love.

Our collection, The Message, has been created using "flawed" vintage silk garments, lovingly selected by Wixii. Each garment has lived a life of its own before subsequently being discovered as unsellable in its condition.

Each silk piece is tended to by artist and maker Ash Mosen, observing its potential and working around its abilities. We support a "make do and mend" ethos, appreciating slow fashion and considering that every piece is a message in itself. We love to celebrate the quality and strength of silk, made from the lustrous protein fiber of the silkworm. Our Mosen X Wixii pieces are designed to be unusual and thought-provoking. Allowing you to reconsider the lifespan of vintage like the mysterious unlabelled garments still to be found at op shops, whose former lives hold their own secret memories.
