Long dresses, cropped hoodies, kimono coats and layered skirts: all of these items of clothing are reimagined in Kvadrat Febrik textiles for Ayzit Bostan’s Garment. While work with fabrics and leather form part of Bostan’s day-to-day practice, Garment allowed her to explore textiles originally designed for a different application to that which she is used to, the project highlights the softness and drapery of Kvadrat Febrik’s Plecto and Uniform Melange. The flowing drape of Kvadrat Febrik’s textiles lent itself to the creation of unexpected volumes, allowing the creation of a mini-collection that pushed Bostan’s work out of the realm of expressiveness, and towards the creation of more architectural, voluminous forms.
