Connectivity between Body &Pattern
Connectivity between Body & Pattern
With this collection Mark Gombault tried to create more connection between clothing and the human body. He did this by creating a new sowing pattern based on the different muscle groups of the body, and by making the dessin of the garment change when the body moves.
By creating a male and female sowing pattern the difference between the proportions of the muscles become clearly visible.
The changing dessin effect is created by the interaction of two fabrics. The top semi-transparent striped fabric slides over another special designed dessin bottom fabric. The direction in which the fabric is placed is the same direction in which the muscle of the body moves.
He designed several dessins each giving their own character and visual effect.
