it knit sweaters by shogo kishino (6D)
the concept behind the motifs used on the 100% wool sweaters comes from the phenomenon of hazy recollections of people we have encountered but can’t remember perfectly.
in a recent interview with designboom shogo kishino told us more – ‘most graphic designers start with t-shirts, but I always thought that patterns simply printed on t-shirts did not blend in with the material, I chose to work with knitwear as the imagery is made with the material. with these pieces I was looking to explore iconic designs and bold colors that worked harmoniously together and highlighted the production method and material. I wanted them to be fun, something people would enjoy to wear. these are just the first pieces from the it knit range, I look forward to exploring the possibilities of knitwear further in the future.’
