Structural Ingenuity: Hand-Crafted Bio-Geometric Menswear
Geometry, structural engineering and fashion don’t often go hand in hand, but London-based designer Ichiro Suzuki combines his love of all three in his menswear line.
Suzuki’s geometric designs were initially inspired by a 19th century patchwork he saw in a tailor’s shop. Since then, he has applied his own traditional fashion training and artistic drive to create his impossibly structured suits and jackets.
The garments are not only rooted in the traditional methods of tailoring; they incorporate elements of structural engineering and geometric design as well.
Using his knowledge of traditional hand-tailoring methods, Suzuki molds his design around living forms, calling the process “bio-geometric tailoring.” The innovative garments are a little bit architecture, a little bit mathematics, and a whole lot of unusual fashion.
