FDM 2016
Alex Po
The collection was inspired by 60s tailoring suit and swimwear. Men′s bespoke suit required long period of customised fitting in order to produce a suit that is perfect for the consumer′s body type and habits. In contrast, swimming suits are made in sizes, but able to fit any type of body perfectly. The 2016 focus of research includes 60s menswear and 20-30s swimsuit, mixing swimwear cutout into knitwear; swimwear fabric on tailoring silhouette. I was fascinated when I place weight on jersey and it bounces from the movement of the garment. This inspired me to added weight on different areas of the garment to add more fun into pastel menswear.
