Materiality

"Suspended"

In the embrace of knit, my collection unfolds as a poignant exploration of love letters lost in the echoes of time. "Suspended" delves into the melancholy of one-sided correspondences, where the heart spills its secrets onto paper, yet the response remains shrouded in silence. 
Inspired by the intricate dance of love, my e-wrap knit fabrics meticulously weave together words and paragraphs borrowed from unwritten responses, creating a tangible manifestation of the unspoken. Modern twists breathe life into nostalgic gestures, vividly bridging the gap between the past and the present. Like love itself, the garments take on a dual nature—simultaneously timeless and contemporary. The interplay of materials captures the essence of emotions left hanging in the balance, suspended in time, etched in the fabric of our collective longing.
