A new feeling for knit
Inspired by the nature and its elements stone and earth ("Feel The Yarn" Competition, 2014)
Protection and freedom. Both are deeply-rooted human needs in a fast-moving time. Almost indestructible, solid and protective: Stone is the inspiration for the three-dimensional surface of a chunky knitted dress. Although it seems like an armour, it still feels soft and delicate. In contrast, the other outfit symbolises the endless freedom of an empty desert. Tracks in the sand, closeness to earth and independence are visualised by the material mix and the organic pattern.
The garments were designed and knitted for the FEEL THE YARN 2014 competition at the Pitti Filati fair in Florence. The competition was organized by Toscana Promozione, Pitti Immagine and Consorzio Promozione Filati. Material donation by Filpucci Spa.
