"You know, I really enjoy forgetting. When I first come to a place, I notice all the little details. I notice the way the sky looks. The color of white paper. The way people walk. Doorknobs. Everything. Then I get used to the place and I don't notice those things anymore. So only by forgetting can I see the place again as it really is."
"...and if I ever went solo my favorite MC would be me."

In design, too often do we think about the aesthetics of a garment and neglect the primary way we interact with our garments - through the tactile sense. The tactile sense is how we interact with the space and time around us. Through exaggerated volumes and dense textures, Spectrum tells the story of the tactile sense through a steadily decreasing scale across 7 looks, bringing the tactile sense to the forefront of the design language.
New language driven by parti-based design. Shearling, wool, suede, nubuck, and leather. Silk, poplin, and sateen.
