Baltic Constructivism

  • Jessica Turnbull

Baltic Constructivism SS22 Womenswear collection, looks at the formulation of knitwear inspired by travels to Estonia and the contrasts in architectural details between two areas of Tallinn; The Old Town and Lasnamäe. Where Stark communist blocks meet intricate patterns. Exploring the technical possibilities of digital knitting. Experimenting with surface manipulation processes by felting, cutting, and embossing. Sustainability has been at the core of the material choices and overall circular design concept by regenerating waste. Pairing unconventional deadstock and donated yarns together creating a juxtaposition of properties. Combining fibres based on their behaviours to create structural knit with a playful nature, stimulating movement.
