Your Story by Bainha

Bainha’s Made to Measure Wearitage is the space where interpretation truly comes in.

We interpret something special to someone, be it a person, place or institution, and use colors, patterns, shapes, textures and questions to be worn. That is what “Your Story by Bainha” does. We work towards making a personal or particular story relevant, highlighting the details, focusing our creative efforts on a result where the happiness and meaning of each story is beautiful, shareable, timeless and tangible.

 

This Story

Childhood Memories is a special collection inspired by a set of drawings that, between the ages of 7 and 14, a special boy, Nuno Canas Mendes, made. 

If not for his brother, I wouldn’t have met his mother. If not for his mother, I wouldn’t have met the drawings that the son had made between the ages of 7 and 14. If not for the son’s drawings, I wouldn’t have met Nuno. If Nuno wasn’t special, he wouldn’t have created, with me, a collection of clothes based on his drawings. If not for the process of the collection, I might not have had the time or space to call him friend.

If not for my other friend Saramago, I wouldn’t have come to this collection conclusion or starting point: what you are as a child will, sooner or later, manifest when you are an adult.

Of Nuno’s gifts: just as he drew, with detail and precision, he now observes, listens and writes. What is to be yours, to you shall come. In case of doubt, let yourself get carried away by the child you once were.

Nuno Canas Mendes

 

Nuno was born a few days before man’s first steps on the moon. He would look at the paper towels over tables at restaurants and see a sea of opportunities - he fixed interiors and exteriors, urban landscapes with domes and towers and profiles wearing shoes. Later on, he got into summarised writing for social media. Nuno is a teacher of exotic things at a University, he is a researcher and a compulsively curious man.
