Apart from being more conceive innovative and intriguing, visionary and wearable also as a way to gather the necessary abilities to create eternal fashion pieces. Andie Enomoto and Taylor Kaclik presented a collection based on the experiments with fabrics and structure . The collections this season also highlighted silhouette which has enabled women to structurally change the way they wear clothes. designers gave rise to this forward-thinking label with practical yet artful idea.
_SCAPES is the collaborative vision of Andie Enomoto and Taylor Kaclik. Creating with an organic approach and process to designing, Enomoto and Kaclik intersect contemporary digital practices with the appreciation for embedding handcrafted elements into each garment. Through the use of storytelling by means of print, pattern and motif, _SCAPES transitions through contrasting environments, referencing personal memories from the designers upbringings.
As memory drives the feelings evoked through each garment, the designers allow the organic and graphic elements to converse throughout the collection. Trompe-l’œil is achieved through the designers’ unexpected combination of graphic and handcraft, and invites the wearer to use multiple senses to understand and experience each garment.
Enomoto and Kaclik’s unbridled and experimental approach to textile development creates a balance of opposites when combined with their refined silhouettes. At the core of _SCAPES, the design process is always confronted with questions to approach the ever-evolving entity that is “innovation”. Combining their individual perspectives, the designers engage in design conversations that stem from two contrasting aesthetics. This organic approach to designing allows Enomoto and Kaclik to surpass their individual capacities, resulting in a combination of strengths and constant opportunity to grow.
