ARTEM PYLYPENKO X HATTON LABS
This capsule collection was designed entirely by Ukrainian designer, Artem Pylypenko during the current Russo-Ukrainian war. All proceeds of this collection will be going to the largest children’s hospital in Ukraine, ‘Ohmatdyt’
“Since the beginning of Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine, I have observed that the instinct for self-preservation prevails over all empathic feelings, hatred prevails over mercy and compassion. My greatest fear manifests itself with some lightning speed: people get angry, hate everyone around them because of resentment, and destroy the brightest in themselves. Your farsightedness narrows to the point where you can't see further than your own nose, boundaries take on a new meaning.
I want this collaboration to be the light at the end of the tunnel. A reminder of something important, something we have forgotten, to form new boundaries within each of us, or to destroy them completely. I want to devote this collaboration to choice--choosing values, morals, guidelines and actions.
Each of us faces a choice every minute of every day. Sometimes these choices are for the good of humanity, other times they are fatal. In today's world, where no community of people exists in isolation from others, values must acquire the status of social consensus regardless of gender, race, culture, religion, language, political or other beliefs. All people are born free and equal in dignity and rights, and only we "adults" fill the next generation with the values that will shape the future. We will donate the proceeds from the sale to the largest children's hospital in Ukraine, "Ohmatdyt". Doctors have been saving the lives of thousands of children by pulling bullets and shrapnel out of their defenseless bodies for six months of war.
Only children have limited choices, they are too dependent on the decisions of adults, and our main value is to protect them from the deadly choices of others.”
