YUME YUME Unveils Reishi™ Look at Buro Stedelijk

Amsterdam-based brand YUME YUME is set to make history with the debut of the world’s first head-to-toe outfit crafted entirely from MycoWorks’ groundbreaking Reishi™, a revolutionary biomaterial. This pioneering collection will be showcased at Buro Stedelijk from November 30, 2023, to January 25, 2024, in a multi-sensory celebration of mycelium innovation.

YUME YUME’s commitment to environmental sustainability is evident in its exploration of alternative materials. This collaboration with MycoWorks marks a significant shift in the brand’s design philosophy, aligning with the principles of biofabrication and creating products that have a lower environmental impact.

Developing YUME YUME designs made with Reishi™ to show at Buro Stedelijk has given MycoWorks the chance to return to its roots: skillfully crafting mycelium into works of art. YUME YUME has appreciated the creative and unexpected properties of mycelium, embracing the endless possibilities and countless forms that it can take on. — Xavier Gallego, Creative Director at MycoWorks

The ‘Descent into Fungal’  exhibition at Buro Stedelijk not only marks a milestone in biomaterial fashion but also introduces an immersive mycelium installation. This installation aims to engage visitors with the material in a tactile and experiential manner, providing insights into its ecological and technological significance.

Making design pieces entirely with Reishi™ shows that a different future in fashion is possible. Giving full visibility to the pure beauty of the mycelium material, I’m very excited to have the Reishi™ styles at Buro Stedelijk, to share with visitors of what we’ve learned so far and hopefully raise awareness around fashion choices.” —YUME YUME co-founder and Creative Director Eva Korsten
