Versatile Vagabond is concept and food for thought for rational travelling.
It's a multifunctional / modular set of clothing for a shorter journey without and to avoid luggage to be checked in. The storage space for lighter luggage, clothing and laundry is distributed over the body by several pockets. The garment offers various combinations and is a modular and experimental system.

Lightness was a central issue when choosing materials, colors and ingredients. Avoiding dead weight plays a big role. Moving weight costs energy. Energy should be saved. The luxury of travelling flexibly to distant destinations nowadays, and in particular flying there, can obviously have a negative impact on environmental pollution and CO2 emissions.

Priorital starting point for the design process was the need for lighter travel: What do I need on my journey? What is really necessary? What can and do I want to wear? What is the function of the single garment? Which combination options do I have?
