A good answer is the outcome of the right question. With the objective of developing sustainable solutions, the Swiss label QWSTION creates bags for daily use, whereby the brand’s core agenda always involves challenging the norm and playfully integrating the latest materials. In a cooperative venture with the ECAL – University of Art and Design Lausanne, students start out with the ultra-light, organically produced material CottonShell® for instance to investigate new options for wearing things. Under creative director Christian Paul Kaegi, they produced prototypes out of the material, which because of its unique texture is impermeable to water and functions without any extra waterproofing. Emerging from this experiment were a scarf with hidden pockets, a bag inspired by bubble wrap, and a rucksack with integrated rain jacket.
