Design story about '2019 SS Black and white collection'.

For this collection, I mainly used summer material like sinamay fabric and straw. 

When I create a new piece, I usually have a design image in my head and start drawing some sketches of it.

Then choose materials and start creating. 

Sometimes I don't even draw sketches or pattern and just start playing with a material.

For example, this black crown is made out of a piece of sinamay sheet. How?

I just cut it randomly and create crown-like shape, so I'll never be able to create exactly the same one. 

Sometimes it's the way I enjoy creation. 

Especially when we grew up, it's getting harder and harder to create freely like kids.

 

I also use any kind of tool to create the ideal shape even if it's not a tool for hat-making.

This time I used a hair iron to curve the shape of the crown. 

It was the perfect tool to create the curve. It looks a bit weird but I really recommend it. ;P

It's one of the most enjoyable moments when I came up with such an idea.

今回のコレクションは夏っぽい素材、麦藁や麻等を使っています。

ぱきっと白と黒で。

たいていは頭にあるデザインのイメージをスケッチに書き、素材を決め、制作に入るという進め方なのですが、

型紙はほぼ使いませんし、スケッチすらせず、いきなり素材を切って適当に形を作る事もあります。

今回の黒い王冠もそうで、二度と同じ物は作れません。笑

制作の際は色々な道具を使いますが、帽子専用の道具ではなくとも、結構使えるものがあります。

例えばヘアアイロンで王冠の曲線を作ったり...意外に使える発見でした。

こういう小さい発見が地味に愉しい瞬間だなーと毎度感じながら制作しています。
