26.-Origami

Origami

S/S 2004

A sculptural study of volumes made possible via a choice of fabric and construction techniques which endow the shirt with a balletic, almost ethereal quality. The stiffness necessary to create the fan effect is achieved by the use of two layers of pleated nylon tulle, laser cut with a pattern of rhombuses and circles, which are joined at the waist in such a way as to allow them to open upwards and accommodate the head and arms. Two tiny loops located inside the front and back of the shirt allow the sleeves to be formed by the use of ribbons and transparent press studs. Defying all the traditional rules of tailoring, the origami shirt focuses the attention of the macro-ruff element to the exclusion of all the other parts of the garment.
