Autumn / Winter 2022/23
A shapeless mushroom with the vein-like structure of a cabbage leaf, an architectural genre that makes use of free, flowing forms – all this is “Blob”. “Blob”, also the name of this collection, is intrinsically connected to the amorphous, shapeless.
Everything seems to be in motion. Washed-out, blurred, faded. Surfaces that fray, structures that are unclear. Hairy, bushy here, irregularities there.
Wool applications grow out from brims like tufts of hair, hat crowns flow seamlessly into hat brims. Next to small shapes reminiscent of plant pots, huge brims swing out. Caps made of needle cord or sweat-shirt material are padded and filled out, wool felt feels like suede and woollen yarn with small tight curls is crocheted into hats. Above all, it remains unclear whether it is a hat or a beanie. Coincidence? Probably not.
