Garment in Focus By Steven Oo - IMPERFECTION – MECHANICAL YOGI

Just like tearing apart the polished chrome exterior of a machine and peering inside, this capsule draws inspiration from the inner workings of a machine. With the direction of knitwear going more technical not only in terms of machinery but also in terms of yarn, we collaborated with Winning Textile whose techy yarns perfectly match the SRY Inlay Jacquard technology from Yangfan. The emphasis was on textures and techniques so the silhouettes are kept extremely simple. All the patterns were knitted in rectangular shapes and then draped on the mannequin to achieve the dramatic silhouettes. The SRY Inlay Jacquard was made using monofilament yarns as the main yarn while a holographic film floats in a controlled mess within the encasement. This technique allows for a very high tech shine to come through. A stretch nylon yarn was used to also knit a very sporty chic mesh stitch which adds an accent of sportswear in an otherwise very futuristic capsule.
