Loro Piana & Duperré 2016

Knit Game - Urban Remix

Dans le cadre de la première édition du concours Knit Game, organisé par la maison italienne de luxe Loro Piana, Quentin Maurin et Nicolas Blas, élèves en DSAA Mode & environnement, étaient en compétition avec les sections knitwear de la Central Saint Martins (Londres) et de l’Istituto Marangoni (Milan). Ensemble, ils ont conçu une collection maille a partir des fils de cachemire développés par Loro Piana, assuré une partie du développement sur machine à tricoter industrielle et dessiné des intentions de prototypes formels. Leur productions ont été présentées sur le stand Loro Piana à Pitti Filati à Florence, Foire international pour fibres textiles, du 29 juin au 1er juillet 2016.

Co ✖ habit - we build over what is leftover

For this project, we decided to focus on the way of mixing heritage to modern technology, such as Loro Piana do with its know-hows, mixed to the urban daily-life of its consumers.

Every city has built its foundations on a profoundly settled heritage. As long as the time flies, it stratifies itself, crushes its past in order to evolve. Once it achieves the surface, the city blooms, spreading like an arborescent web. It has reached the smothering point of no return. Overcome with growth and perpetual expension, the city is looking for fresh air. It strives towards the sky to find a new land to conquer. The material extrudes itself from the ground, streches out, gets filiform until it looses its palpability until it becomes its own virtual avatar. The city gets digitized ; its urban framework expands upon the four dimensions : profoundity, surface, height and digital. Fed with previous avant-garde, the city call upon them in the digital world to build its own identity, even if it has to become the new heritage of future megalopolis.
