Marvelous Realm is a textile forecast collection (A/W 2013), relating to marvelous realism accepting fantastical or magical elements in a rational world. Pushing the boundaries of materials and technology to create complex knits with three-dimensionality, the textiles look to crafting wearables as future solutions. The fabric pieces include snake leather embroidered with pure silk yarn, organic cotton yarns with metallic polyester yarns to create delicate knit structures and lustred yarns to create shimmery effects in the weaves. Aiming to retain and enhance the materials ability to age beautifully and gracefully to and have a longer life, this collection underscores a new approach to consumerism.
