KNITWEAR SYMPHONY 2017 PART 1

對我來說,這個Knitwear Show可能是香港貿發局主辦的Centrestage中一顆秘密的寶石吧。由HKKIDS(毛織創新及設計協會)主辦的Knitwear Symphony 最近幾屆都在香港發掘了不少有趣的人才。今季他們繼續在這個強壯蓬勃的基礎上再進一步。但似乎今次是個較小型的表演?或者可能是因為後台比以前少了近一半吧!當我們繼續深入這個屬於本地設計的秘境,幾個系列倒是有些面熟,但依然存在不少驚喜。—第二部分繼續。

To me the secret gem of HKTDC CENTERSTAGE or it’s incarnation before, is the Knitwear show. Hosted by HKKIDS (Hong Kong Knitwear Innovation and Design Society), the last few editions have produced the most interesting talent in the Fragrant Harbour. This season also continued to build on this burgeoning tradition with another strong showing. It seemed to be a smaller show? Or perhaps the backstage was half it’s previous size giving off this impression? As we have reached deeper into the local design scene, a few collections we had seen before resurface here but there were still many surprises left! PT 2 to follow…

毒品/ESTEBAN CORTAZAR WOMEN’S FW16

你對80後的認識是什麼?叛逆、個性突出?Esteban Cortazar 就是這樣的一位80後時裝設計師。他是邁阿密國際時裝週上最年輕的設計師。Be Honest,我對這系列有瘋狂購物的衝動!也許你不知道,Cortazar自小喜歡騎馬,因此他的系列多數都會出現這個原素。看看頭三套皮革上衣,抽象化地表現了馬鞍的形態,但配針織下身卻又出奇地吻合。認真的:開叉針織長褲、牛仔褲、Fur毛毛皮褸都肯定會是我今季的must have item!

毒品/BEHIND THE SCENES. KNITWEAR SYMPHONY 2016 PT. 3

Truly a symphony. This fashion show was “Mobb Deep”. An ensemble cast of knitwear flavors from the up-and-coming in Hong Kong. Organized by the good people at HKKIDS (Hong Kong Knitwear Association, lets say), there was some real talent to be had in this season’s crop. Hong Kong’s future is in some capable hands. Hopefully these young guns will be allowed to foster on home turf! We sent in a worse for wear, Nick D to photograph the proceedings backstage and somehow he turned some, “too cool for school” models into a laughing and smiling mess! PT. 3.

毒品/SOMARTA BODYSUITS SS2016

緊身透視裝繡上非洲的特色圖案,穿起來似是人類的皮膚畫上獨有圖案,像擁有大自然原始的力量。

Liking the flav of these head to toe knit bodysuits from Japanese brand Somarta. Practicality? I don’t know.
