Under The Root Entelechy
“The human body is magikal, the pieces are each meticulously handmade, and therefore unique, as you, throughout every seam,” – Jennifer Brown
Dedicated to using sustainable and vintage materials, Under The Root offers a selection of “fabled, vintage-inspired loungerie and boudoir accessories”. The label’s designer, Jennifer Brown shared with us images from her latest collection, Entelechy.
The collection includes a wonderful selection of camisoles, rompers, bralettes, hipsters and more. Sizes range from XSmall to XLarge and all of the items are hand-made. Entelechy, like all of Jennifer’s collections, is made from materials that are sustainable, reclaimed and vintage.
If you’re wondering why Jennifer decided on the name Entelechy for her latest collection she does gives us a few definitions of the word in her look book. The one we like the most was this:
“In vitalist philosophy, [Entelechy] a vital force that propels one to self-fulfillment. It is also understood by many as the dynamic purpose that is coded within, a purposeful unfolding of what a thing is.”
Seeing as how the vintage fabrics and materials she used in this collection found new life and will enrich the lives of her customers, we can see how Entelechy fits as both a description of her collection and source of inspiration. We’d love to hear what our readers think. We’ve included images from Entelechy for you to enjoy.
