Digital pattern cutting, garment construction, sampling and virtual fashion
Gerber, Lectra, Clo3D
// Awarded Fred Spurr Award for innovation in digital design using Lectra // R75-5 is an experimental collection emphasising the versatility of garments: The pattern of one garment gets deconstructed; It is key to every garment and a focus for experiments. A leather motorbiking jacket turns into a luxury womenswear collection transporting its energy and functional detailing. Light grey, burnt orange, pale lilac and white build an energetic and sporty aesthetic. Elements of motorcycling are incorporated through functional details, metal buckles and decorative stitching. Scuba is topstitched onto elastic and slashed open allowing stretch to fit the body. Jacket sleeves have become trouser legs, resulting in a baggy, high-waisted trouser. A jumpsuit is convertible and both zip-front suit and trouser in one, revealing a concealed waistband. An oversized asymmetrical top has been playfully cut from the deconstructed jacket pattern. A buckle-fastened skirt, combines functionality, experimental cutting and can be zipped onto a jacket. Printed tops are playfully covered with bold hand-drawn details taken from motorcycling gear.
