IN THE AWARD WINNING ‘ALCHEMY’ COLLECTION CONNY GROENEWEGEN UTILIZED KNITS WITH CONTRASTING YARNS TO SHAPE EACH GARMENT INTO 3D VOLUMES.
IN HER FIRST COLLECTION FOR ELECTRIC CO, CALLED 01, SHE TAKES THE CONSTRUCTIVE POTENTIAL OF SOFT TECH KNITS ONTO THE NEXT LEVEL.
POLYESTER MONOFILAMENT BECOMES THE MAIN CONSTRUCTIVE AND TRANSFORMATIVE ELEMENT OBTAINING EVEN MORE OUTSPOKEN STRUCTURES AND VOLUMES.
IN THE 01 COLLECTION A 3D KNIT STRUCTURE MADE FROM POLYESTER MONOFILAMENTS BEHAVES LIKE AN EXOSKELETON ‘RECODING’ THE ARCHETYPICAL BOMBER
AND SWEATER SILHOUETTE TO FIT ELECTRIC CO’S VIGOROUS DYNAMICS, ENABLING BOLD SHAPES TO INTERACT WITH THE FEMININE CONTOUR.
