CJY’s ” Wood Be” Collection
London based designer CJ studied at Central Saint Martins and graduated in 2012. Her latest collection called “Wood Be”,(a play on words), is inspired by the shapes and construction of ancient musical instruments.
CJ re-created them combining wooden pieces with knitted and crocheted forms creating tubes, lines, strings and fringes, as well as waves expressed in different visual ways. , The knitted and crochetted elements were used as the connection between wood and fabric.
The collection also aims to explore the idea of using natural alternative material as the primary source, such as wood, which is one of the most treasure ways to communicate with nature, and to refine the traditional techniques of wood and crafts .
“EACH OF THE UNIQUE PIECES REPRESENTS MY PERSONAL IMPRESSION OF IDEAL WOMEN WHO THEY“WOOD BE”
