Float AW17 is here!
Lois Hazel is thrilled to introduce to you our 2017 Autumn/ Winter collection, Float.
The inspiration for Float comes largely from the designers time spent interning with Amsterdam based textile artist, Marianne Kemp. http://www.horsehairweaving.com/
The images below show one of the projects they worked on together, from sitting down designing the fabric, weaving it, pattern making then making the final garment.
Lois was fascinated by the intricacies of the weaving process, being able to work so closely with the entire process of producing a garment was truly inspirational. Seeing the way all the warp threads were delicately and precisely waiting for the weft thread to be woven through; Floating there, waiting to unify the whole structure. For Lois, it was the small intricate details that made up the beauty of the final product. The contrast between the loose threads and the solid fabric just sitting next to one another.
Looking at Float as a final product, it is easy to see how seamlessly each element of the garments are individually and intricately designed, while disrupted, come together to create elegant and wearable pieces.
