Transformable design applied to fashion

Methodology is a collection focused on transformable design, very interesting!

 

INSPIRATION

Methodology is a Hong Kong based designer label, initiated in UK, which is inspired by concept of cubism painting. Methodology suggests designing garments that can be worn more than one way, to give a second life to the garment. With Methodology, there is no certain way to wear a garment. With its transformable design, and your creativity, various possibilities and styles could be created. In Collection 5, we continue to apply the transformable element in the designs. Many of the silhouettes in the collection inspired by the break down shapes of different cubist painting. Methodology constructs uncommon shapes together to form our collection 5. Many of the designs in the accessories collection are multi-functional. They are can be taken apart and transform into something else.

WHAT MAKES THE ITEMS UNIQUE

In Material, besides of connecting endroll fabric and new fabric, we also mixed different texture of fabric in this collection. This gives us a new effect in this collection. In Collection 5, we experiment the structural silhouettes by joining shapes together. In the accessories collection, all the denim and lambskin that were used in the collection are upcycled. We partner with a high-end women’s leather wear manufacture for material . Leather garment manufacture always has many good quality trim offs. We hand pick the best from those trim offs and cut them in small shapes to create this collection.

MAKING: HOW THE ITEMS HAVE BEEN OR WILL BE PRODUCED

We first colleague shapes and different texture together to create forms. Then we start developing the initial forms into wearable silhouettes and designs with sketches. And then we transform the sketches in paper pattern and make the sample. Everything you see in the accessories collection is hand made except from the metal. We hand pick lambskins from trim offs and cut them in small pieces of shapes. After, we put them together to create forms and become the designs you see in this collection.
