Textured jacquard dress installation
The Capsule collection “Alpinology” was created in collaboration with innovative northern Italian knit mill Progetto Maglia Srl. We were inspired by the traditional Austrian knit hand crafting and pure essential forms in interaction with womens bodies.
We played on defining surface and volumes using innovative double knit jacquard technology. In an attempt to merge the traditional and the contemporary, we landed on the updated color pallet combining dissolved yellow neon yarn, anthracite and traditional dark hazelnut brown.
001a the hazelniut / anthracite knit sweater was the starting point of this exploration on knit. The grid structure was created to be worn inside and out. From the outside, the puffy surface between the lines has been added for additional 3 dimensional look. For the inside, the grey grid dominates the optic.
001b the yellow/anthra colored sweater followed as a second explorationfor this style. The crew itself has articulated shoulder panels and straight unisex silohouette.
001b the dress is a hero piece of this capsule. Not only it brings updated silhouette, it also has the largest engineered knit surface for better fit and look. Same as the sweater it can be work on both sides.
