SCHLEMMER TUNIC & PYRAMIDS TOP, 2014
Silks / Costume
SCHLEMMER is inspired by Oskar Schlemmer’s studies on the universal principles and proportions of the human body. This design is a long unisex T-shirt tunic that is meant to fit both men and women.
PYRAMIDS : Made of 8 interlocking triangular pieces of fabric, this top is a geometrical play on the triangular form.
This first trio of studio garment designs are a dance of geometric forms: triangles, rectangles, squares. Perfect structured shapes are juxtaposed with the flow and movement of silk on the body. Inspired by Ballets Russes costumes, with a rigidity and severity of line and an expressiveness of flow and color. The bold statement colors paired with neutral tones accentuate the shapes of the garment.
Created and refined over the course of two years of research on color, proportions, measurements for the body in motion, these are the foundational lines for the studio’s garments, showing the formal relationships between costume & the body in space.
