DIVE INTO BLUE
This project started with an indigo fabric from Japanese weaver Showa (Fabrics, 6C8-6D5), notable for its cotton/wool blend. Starting from this fine denim, students in fashion and textile at the École Duperré (Paris), guided by their professor Mathieu Buard, transformed the surfaces of jeans with inserts, wash-outs, engraved or printed decoration. A modern approach to ornamentation, using lacquered, ceramic and porcelain accessories from Dorlet (Accessories, 4F24), maker of metallic accessories. These textile developments propose an adventurous and experimental wardrobe, where manipulations lie at the very essence of garments.
