In a world filled with eye-grabbing prints and blinding metallic fabrics – do you perhaps feel like taking a step back and opting for simplistic, minimalistic sartorial choices?
If so, then the recently concluded Uniqlo exhibition may help you get a tad little closer to your bare aesthetics to examine the science behind fashion. Held during the London Fashion Week and titled The Art and Science of LifeWear: New Form Follows Function, the experiential event showcased garments from three perspectives – Art, Science and Craftsmanship.
The brand defined LifeWear as ‘clothing designed to make everyone’s life better.’ Yes, from the ever-evolving and oh-so-overlooked pair of socks to your go-to practical T-shirt, the LifeWear in your life was given a fitting ode in an immersive exhibition.
The event also showed “examples of technological innovations showing the new standards being set for what clothing can be, such as revolutionary ‘Wholegarment’ technology, which employs carefully calibrated and beautiful three-dimensional silhouettes in seam-free knitwear.” After all, didn’t someone once say – We used to think that revolutions are the cause of change? Actually it is the other way around: change prepares the ground for revolution.
