NFP: Convertible Knits That Go The Distance
Posted: Sep 30 2014
I'm an advocate of buy less, wear more. It's a philosophy shared by designer Gail Travis, whose line of convertible knitwear fosters the concept of transition, transformation and evolution. Her "styles are of the moment, but not bound by time" and each piece has the ability to link, layer, fold, snap, shift or connect, creating a platform for personal expression. The pieces are intended to be building blocks for a modern wardrobe.
NFP’s ability to turn upside-down, backwards, and creatively mold, reinforces its ability to transform within an ever-changing wardrobe and ensures the sustainability of each garment.
The signature WRAP NECK CARDIGAN (above), for instance, can be worn season after season and in three (or more) different ways. This type of design "supports a more socially conscious and resourceful lifestyle through appreciation of highly designed, multi-functional product. Rooted in timeless architectural shapes, New Form Perspective’s goal is to encourage minimizing the disposable mindset of recent fashion, and increase awareness of fashion’s strength to be an enhancement to our basic environment and personal self. Ultimately sharing the beauty of fashion through it’s ability to be inventive and creative while maintaining a wearable artform. N:F:P positively motivates each individual towards a more personalized interaction between designer and consumer."
