May your choices reflect your hopes and not your fears, said Nelson Mandela.
We confront a present in which certainties have slowly collapsed, letting us paralysed and disoriented, deprived of the usual routines.
We are human and we make mistakes. Falls and ascents.
Nonetheless, times are ripe to finally embrace this uncertainty. Fashion interprets our fears and gives us courage to react by exploiting the power of yarns.
Knitwear awakens a new concept of interaction in which the individual, far from alone, is the center of a network of connections.
Everything is inventive, experimental and linked to the rest.
Jacquards become bicolored, contrasting colors that come together, a dark color with a light color. Jacquard patterns are fragmented, innovative and geometric. Straight, continuous or intermittent lines intersect each other creating optical challenges and asymmetries. Easy the reference to cobwebs and hives.
Open work stitches are not romantic but always geometric and concentric like networks.
Yarns are made of long fibers, that make them full and consistent, giving material and volume even in released points.
The rustic and wild bouclé fantasy resists, but leaves room to new contaminations.
Gauges are variable; 12 and 14 are so thin that create transparent games to be played out as overlapping nets. In gauge 5 voluminous networks both in technical yarns, mohair and alpaca yarns compare the concept of data interconnection network with a human network of people.
Colours are chalky, neutral and compact like our common destiny. Light and dark greys, light and dark browns. The light coexists with the dark and with all the cold shades of blue, the colour of electricity and of the information travelling in the data network.
We are all dazed and questioning, but, strong of our connections, we can finally move on, go beyond fear, surpassing our limits and accepting our imperfection.
