Edward Crutchley launched is label at LONDON: COLLECTIONS MEN in 2015. The English based Central Saint Martins educated designer focuses on craftsmanship, materials, and specifically artisanal textile techniques. Today we take a look at the Edward Crutchley Spring/Summer 2017 Collection.
The season marks the designer’s first partnership with Clo, a cutting-edge 3D garment visualisation software that allows him to digitally sew and drape flat garment shapes into detailed 3D renderings. These avatars for a material world encourage a more active evaluation of form and space. This enables Crutchley to highlight the contrast between the cybernetic and the physical. Enlarged fits and volumes are either extremely oversized or very formfitting.
