Il suo nome è LUCA LIN.
|Supplemento di AMICA con la sfilata di LUCA LIN|
Esistono collezioni non solo belle, ma anche “intelligenti“. Non nel senso 3.0 della wearable technology, ma in quello più tradizionale dell’uso del pensiero creativo in modo coerente e razionale per la progettazione di capi indossabili, facilmente abbinabili e intercambiabili tra loro, ben calibrati nelle proporzioni e nei colori, creativi ma non eccessivi, curati nei minimi dettagli e dal decorativismo sintetico e di classe.
|Illustrazione dedicata a Luca Lin|
to talk about one of my ex student at Haute Future Fashion Academy, because it was a really pleasant surprise, this morning just before the drawing lessons, reading the newspapers and see his creations in the second fashion shows supplement of “Amica” magazine. His name is LUCA LIN.
LUCA LIN: Hello, it was an unexpected surprise, I am very happy.
TFP: What kind of experience was “Next Generation“ in terms of your professional career?
LL: “Next Generation” has allowed me to see more closely what it means to create a collection, to see live the design and production cycle at 360 °. This experience made me learn a lot.
LL: The installation ”2000 sculpture” by American artist Walter De Maria consisting of 2000 stuccoed canes placed one after the other, as well as the stitching on the Baseball ball, are both obsessive elements of the collection; the men’s classic clothing, such as the classic tailoring herringbone detail within the classic jackets, reinterpreted as a sort of exaggerated embroidery on a leather jacket.
LL: The traditional elements are surely the craftsmanship, the manual skills and
the tailored details of the garments, the most innovative are the use of these elements to create a mix and match of fabrics with a very different nature among them, such as the jersey net handwoven with the heavy wool thread to create a new fabric, or the pockets on shirts applied with no seams but through rubberizing.
LL: I start initially from an image search, of various kinds, not only inherent to the mood of the collection, and I dwell much on the details; then I pass to research and experimentation on materials, usually only after that I define exactly the mood I want to continue with the design of the collection.
TFP: You have a school and professional curriculum already rich in experience and skills acquired; how useful is the knowledge of modeling in your work?
TFP: How do you imagine the next steps in your career?
LL: I am currently considering several opportunities, I hope to work for a style office, in the meantime I’m planning my capsule collection.
I immediately loved his collection, and it inspired me for the realization of this illustration in pencil and mixed media, which I dedicate to his young talent.
I thank Luca for his usual availability and I can’t wait to follow in his future collections!
