Usually when I find a post I like in another blog, I use only a few pictures for my post and ad a link. In the case of Jantine Van Peski I couldn’t resist posting here almost everything I found in Trendsland and in Jastine’s facebook page. She studied at the Amsterdam Fashion Institute before attending the Fashion Department of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp, where she graduated in 2011 from a master (MA) degree with ‘WIRES 10.0’ collection. Jantine gained design experience at the fashion houses of Haider Ackermannand A.F. Vandevorst. As you will notice, her work focuses on silhouette and craftsmanship, with great attention to materials and techniques used.
“The Wires 10.0 collection started when I found these amazing books about old 70s textile objects. They are very old fashioned but rich in colour, shape and technique.”
The collection consists of 12 complex and labor intensive pieces, sometimes completely knotted and sometimes the macramé is integrated in the garments.
The designer’s main focus is to find the daring symbiosis between the handcrafted pieces and the minimalistic, pure designs of the garments. The silhouettes are rich and refined, centered around the fragile yet firm constructions.
The knotted pieces are made of 100% silk yarns or blended with merino wool. Some pieces are made completely out of woollen yarns. For the fabrics Jantine used fine leathers, heavy wool and thin silks.

“The material and technique are the starting point and from there on I sketch and try things out.”
Have a lovely Day!!!
