Bonhomme has partnered with french up-cyclers Super Marché after finding common ground in their love of flea markets, thrifting, and the heritage of meaningful items that exude character. Super Marché specializes in creating garments for all from second-hand clothes, transforming what we already have.
Bonhomme has an affinity for the well-made and meaningful, citing escape evasion maps of the Second World War and Emmanuel Alphonse Bonhomme drawings as the inspiration behind the brand. Joining forces, the Super Marché x Bonhomme Down Jacket solidifies the friendship and common ground between the two brands, prioritizing a zero-waste approach.
The sleeveless down jacket is made in Marseille, France, from vintage 1960s rayon escape maps and quilts from the surplus stock of a Norman factory. There is no actual down in this piece as the deadstock quilts were filled with polyester, making it vegan-friendly.
Available via pre-order only—to avoid over-production and waste—the Down Jacket will deliver in early-December.
