We set out to create a garment that would explore the variable relationship between clothing and body – one that could push, pull, resize, add, subtract, reveal, obscure, disguise, and suggest.As an analog to architectural notions of structure, identity/image, and enclosure, this single adaptable system blurs distinctions between undergarment, fashion statement, and protection from the elements while fulfilling the needs of each. Additionally, a single garment with the flexibility to resize to different body types and scales parallels a building envelope system that can adapt to different program needs at building and local scales.
