29 Mar Masking & revealing, pleats and patterns
Masking & revealing, pleats and patterns.
Fashion and architecture usually share techniques such as pleats or patterns that are obviously correlated. Their relation goes to another level when both of them use techniques in unexpected ways. Masking and revealing is a game that fashion and architecture play ‘out of the box’ such as the Curtain Wall House in Tokyo designed by Shigeru Ban. In this pioneer design, curtains which have replaced the walls give an airy and light character to the building. On the other hand, the classic design of a jumpsuit has been trasformed by Dion Lee in a dress- jumpsuit by adding almost a ‘curtain’ over it. Floating structures are another exceptional case when they are turned into buildings or clothes respectively. The Tea House in Frankfurt designed by Kengo Kuma & Associates is like a ‘bubble’ in the park while the SS18 collection by Thombrowneny makes us to want to fly.
