≤0° IT'S MUCH TOO COLD
"The Womenswear Collection ≤0° “IT`S MUCH TOO COLD” is inspired by a polar expedition into the endless ice of the Arctic, in search of Aurora Borealis, the northern lights.
- glossy frozen surfaces, cracking bluish icewalls, melting snow, drifting ice floes and the intense colors of the Aurora -
a landscape that seems to be from a futuristic and surreal world.
This inspiration translates into experimental knit and laser-cut structures and textile surfaces with varnish finishing. Warming textiles like neoprene, leather and wool yarns are key elements of the collection.
The garments capture the otherworldliness of the arctic dessert and the bizarre illuminations of the northern lights. Flexible laser-cut structures, movable acryli-glass “ice-crystals” which are knitted into the fabric, the dynamic interaction of knitted color-gradients, iridescent metallic fibers and asymmetrically draped shapes create a dynamic, vivid expression."
