Electric Co Collection 01. Redefining perspectives on femininity and luxury
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. This Polyester monofilament, an industrial leftover, adds a luxurious metallic shine to each garment delicately contrasted by an extra fine wool and mohair which gives the garment wear ability and comfort. Reclaimed Polyester monofilament is scarce. According to what is available, fine and thick monofilaments are used. This is one reason why the Electric Co designs are produced in limited editions: In continuous evolution from one collection to the other.
Bianca hip jumper is made from a 6 gauge 3D heavy structure knit developed and produced in the TextielLab. With on both shoulders a YKK 40cm XL metal zip and specially developed elastic leather cuffs. The seams are tape finished and the jumper comes with a luxurious and quilted silk Duchess lining jacket designed to match the knit and support the sculpted outer shell. The lining jumper is detachable from the jumper: it is interchangeable and can be worn separately. Polyester monofilament, an industrial leftover, is delicately contrasted by furry wool which gives the garment wear ability and comfort.
The jumper and lining are sewn and hand finished in the Netherlands.
