WHAT EXCITED YOU ABOUT COLLABORATING WITH KOMONO?
It was very motivating to be selected for the Komono collaboration so early on in the collection process. Furthermore I learned how to work with a professional company and gained insight into their working process from the design to the launch of the final product. Last but not least it gave my collection a more professional outlook and I’m really excited that the glasses will be my first piece sold in store.
CAN YOU TELL US MORE ABOUT YOUR DESIGN AND HOW THE WHOLE PROCESS WENT?
I chose a cat-eye frame and draped lycra fabric around it. The sharp frame should be in strong contrast to the flowing fabric on top of it.
The drape of the fabric should resemble flowing water. By translating the fabric drape into solid acetate the frame looks liquefied. To make a clear reference to the theme of water, I chose a transparent turquoise colorway besides the two solid frames.
The process went without any complications. The Komono designers helped me to translate my design idea into awearable and industrially producible piece.
IN WHAT WAYS DO THE GLASSES COMPLEMENT OR ENHANCE YOUR COLLECTION?
The glasses, my shoes and bracelets all work with the idea of a liquid drape shape. These rather sculptural and experimental accessoires stand out and compliment my fitted silhouettes.
