CITY PUTS US IN A PERPETUAL FLOW. MAKE US FEEL THAT WE MIGHT BE MOVING ALL THE TIME, NEVER STOPPING. WE TRY TO REACH A POINT FASTER AS POSSIBLE, AND SOME DRAG ALONG OTHERS. EVERY CITY DWELLING BODY TAKES UP THIS FAST PACE.

GARMENT BEING THE “CLOSEST” OBJECT WITH DAILY BODY MOVEMENTS, IT TAKES PART OF MY MASTER DEGREE RESEARCH THAT REVOLVED AROUND AN URBAN RYTHMS QUESTIONING. HOW COULD THE GARMENT PROPOSE  A DIFFERENT RYTHM TO THE BODY ? A RYTHM AS A SLOW-DOWN, A “SETBACK”.

THESE GARMENTS HAVE BEEN DESIGNED TO REACT TO A DIFFERENT RYTHM, TO THAT OF THE WIND. THE GARMENT DRAPE DOESN’T REACT TO THE WALKING ANY MORE, BUT TO THE AIR RUSHING INTO THE LINING. USING THE WIND AS AN UNEXPECTED EVENT, THESE GARMENTS TAKE AN OTHER FORM, OF LIGHTNESS, OF SLOW-DOWN. THEY PROPOSE THE BODY TO MODIFY HIS PACE.

“GET SOME AIR”, “TAKE A BREATH”, THESE PHRASES QUALIFY A BREAK; THESE GARMENTS REALLY GET SOME AIR TO GIVE A BREATH FOR THE BODY.

WORKING WITH PLEATS MADE IT POSSIBLE TO CREATE AN EXPANSION-REDUCTION RELATIONSHIP FOR GARMENTS AND THE BODY AS WELL BECAUSE IT COULD GET MORE SPACE. TWO FABRICS ARE CONFRONTED, ONE HEAVY AND THE OTHER ONE VERY LIGHT, PROVIDING A GARMENT DEPLOYMENT WITH AIR AND A WAY TO HIDE ITSELF INSIDE OTHERS GARMENT PARTS.
