Autumn – Winter 2020
THE ART OF LOVE
1×1 Studio has always been synonymous with fantastic technical knitwear and collections that have a romanticised interpretation of the world we live in. For Autumn Winter 2020, Creative Director Yi-Ling Kuo, has harnessed inspiration from the tempestuous elements of love stories she see on her many international travels. Goodbye kisses at the airport, crossed words on carriages aboard a long train journey home a relationship break up, held in public space to save face. Love was never meant to be easy and this collection sets out to document the minutia of love from happy tears to ironic smiles.
Emotive hues of passionate reds and purple and fresh mint are juxtaposed with blacks and metal shades. innovative knitting techniques breath newness into the whole collection alongside the favoured ladder style.
Fabrications are innovative with Corn, recycled and Sparkling gold yarns, vegan leather and metal trimming. They have a handcrafted sensibility and are designed with a 70’s point of view. 1x1Studio’s pieces are created with the firm belief that there aren’t many boundaries between menswear and womenswear, the pieces should reflect the inspiration of this collection and just be loved.
