Editor’s Notes: Meals is a new brand out of Los Angeles by romantic partners Sam and Rebma Salad. Rebma is the (formerly) anonymous creative force behind the non-binary denim brand, 69, while Sam is a writer/designer. Under the slogan “ready to wear that’s ready to eat,” Meals comes off as a brand that’s just here to have fun but a look closer reveals a serious brand with serious garms.
The SS20 collection is made from natural fibers (primarily cotton canvas and muslin), all of which is designed, cut, sewn, and dyed in Los Angeles. Each step of the clothing manufacturing process takes place in a five-mile radius. The seasonal offerings include full canvas suits dyed to look like watermelons, shrimp, funfetti, beets, a table-cloth, assorted citrus, aubergine, and ripe bananas. According to Meals, future collections will include washes that resemble food stains like spaghetti dinner.
Although this is an SS20 collection, the brand is pursuing a see-now, buy-now model so you can pick up your favorite piece now straight from meals.clothing.
