For the Fall / Winter 2016 show in New York and Shanghai we showcased an unusual collaboration between two of our favorite areas in fashion; activewear and handcrafts. Working together for the first time, SPINACTIVE designer Eva De Laat met up with BAlilAB owner Alexandre Miel to create an innovative fashion hybrid that combines Eva’s circular knits (created by Santoni Circular and Seamless Technology) with the talents of Alexandre’s studio in Bali, where his team applied their careful handwork, including embroidery, beading, pleating and quilting.

In an effort to share the journey with the visitors at SPINEXPO, the steps to the studio work at BAlilAB were photographed and used in the SPINACTIVE trend forum, however we found the images too beautiful to keep to ourselves. It is with great pleasure we invite you to view the photos below and we hope that you enjoy this thoughtful and tactile journey of SPINACTIVE F/W 2016.
