The muse of the new fall-winter 2022/2023 DAMAGE SUPPRESSOR collection was a microscopic creature, the tardigrade. Its ability to resist any damage and survive in any conditions inspired KRAKATAU to create a collection of down jackets, insulated coats, and cold-weather accessories. Just like a tardigrade, they can resist rain, wind, and cold.
Degraded lands cover more than one-fifth of Earth's land area. The earth’s soil has lost much of its fertility there; the evaporation level is 10 times higher than the amount of water falling back to the Earth, sandstorms make it difficult to breathe, and wind, heat, and cold all create extreme conditions to live in. For our DAMAGE SUPPRESSOR campaign photoshoot, we traveled to the desert and studied the performance of KRAKATAU clothes under harsh wintertime conditions.
