We are seeing an era of choice move away from us and having to adapt to new restraints. Conscious transparency explores the innovation and opportunity that comes from living with less.
For design, the shift to a more minimalist item will take a number of forms. The Denki Blazer shows how a rework with subtle hand made embroidery and decorative paneling can enhance technical tailoring, underpinned by a zero-waste approach. This offers greater durability and versatility for a future timeless piece. As there is less fabric the aim is to evolve the mindset to think less is better.
The silhouette still maintains the tailored style but a structural re-think. A suitably relaxed blazer with a deconstruct sleeve and removable panel shows how we can move away from perennial items to create tonal modularity, showing the garment in a new light.
