The versatile home
Animation by Peter Hsieh
Stijlinstituut met up with young design talent to re-think our notion of the home. For fleeing nations, home is represented by nothing more than a smart phone and a back pack. For the modern city dweller, nomadic life saves them from the suffocating pressure of unaffordable mortgages and too much stuff.
THE LYCRA® BRAND IN LONDON
INVISTA’s fashion marketing materials on display in London
We presented a two-day workshop for INVISTA’s Intimate Apparel, Swim and Legwear innovation platforms. Technologies where displayed using a variety of media: prototypes on models and mannequins, hangers, and via photographs arranged in storytelling collages on big printed panels. An important part of the presentations were explanations of relevant technologies, consumer background research and branding as well as the fashion trends themselves.
Capturing progressive design
Snapshots of a garment shoot
A photoshoot to capture the prototypes we designed for INVISTA’s portfolio of pioneering hosiery and sock developments. By combining newness in fibre concepts with fashion looks we married fresh aesthetics with smart performance features to generate innovation by proposing progressive design.
We are preparing to tell the story

We help to sell fibre concepts by using them in concept garment collections. Prototyping is a powerful tool to tell a fabric story.
Together with tasty and triggering communication tools, it can open doors that would otherwise be closed.

Presentation by Anne Marie Commandeur
We were invited to speak during the LYCRA® FIBRE MOVES event in Como to reflect on the future of super sheer hosiery and how legwear could enable us to be an optimal version of ourselves.

For Heimtextil 2016 Theme Park, stijlinstituut developed two multimedia presentations together with visual artists DEFRAME.
