In everyday life we are surrounded by information whether acknowledged or otherwise. Everything that is found in our personal environments can be collated into data or statistical formats of some sort. In recent years there has been a rise of interest in the methods of visualising data, particularly in graphic design fields where work in this sphere is being increasingly valued as ‘art’ in its own right.
This knitwear collection finds its roots in visual interpretations of data. The data itself is irrelevant apart from the fact that it can be anything found in everyday existence; it is mundane and familiar, thus making its interpretation all the more exciting. This establishes the foundation for the silhouette: simple, classic and familiar shapes with an emphasis on detailed fabrics, colour and embellishment. Embellishment is a primary concern, the purpose of which is explored further than as a means of surface decoration; instead crystals and metallic cord are integrated into the fabric composition.
Furthermore, construction and placement of detail are fundamental considerations in order to create exquisitely clean garments where a sense of function is underlying.
