The knitting technique presents the possibility to shape a fabric in a sculptural way, steering in which direction the thread will go, where the fabric can increase or decrease. Partial knit is a technique which chooses exactly where to build a knitted structure by adding or removing loops and where to link it together. Knitted pleats make sharp bends.
I wanted to take these traits of the knitting technique to their edge, by simultaneously enhancing what is so special about knits and going against the common perception that knits have to be soft and rounded.
