LEON EMANUEL BLANCK

LEON EMANUEL BLANCK

ANFACTUOUS DISTORTION is the result of Leon Emanuel Blanck´s experiment, trying to drape a pair of pants around himself, whilst constantly moving. This process resulted in an odd-fitting pair of pants, distorted. However, the coalescing seams, this unusual approach, and the interesting way the material and pattern evolved on the body fascinated him.

In this project, the design process is reduced to the minimum; every cut arises naturally through the flow of the fabric during the forming procedure. In a way, the process is even more technical than it is archaic; the outcome is a cutting edge organic collection that abolishes all preconceived ideas of pattern making. He only decides if the piece will become an upper or lower body garment, then let’s the material and the body interact during the forming procedure.

LEON EMANUEL BLANCK not only pushes boundaries with his patternmaking method, but also by completely abolishing symmetry within his garments. This is all the more natural, considering his idea of the human body not being symmetrical either. One dropped should, one arm longer or thicker than the other or even scoliosis make it obvious that it is not enough to just form one body half and then mirror the pattern. Therefore not a single piece is found twice within one garment.

Every piece of the collection was once a sculpture fitted perfectly to the human anatomy without any regular seaming, coming to life once worn by people.
