New York label Area and luxury concept store Opening Ceremony have teamed up once more for an exclusive capsule collection that pushes the boundaries of interactive clothing. Area designers Piotrek Panszczyk and Beckett Fogg show off their skills in fabric manipulation in a covetable collection featuring the brand’s signature geometric embossing technique as well as miniature perforations. These machine-punched perforations allow the delicate fabrics to eventually evolve into a delicate mesh that is unique to each individual piece depending on how often it is worn and washed.
Beckett comments: “We wanted the texture to speak for itself. It’s not about a specific person or story. We like to think that it can relate to almost anyone.”
The newly designed capsule collection includes T-shirts, tunics and shorts with a sporty, minimalistic touch staying true to the brand’s aesthetic.
The Area x Opening Ceremony Capsule Collection is available now in stores and online.
