it knit sweaters by shogo kishino (6D)


shogo kishino of 6D has launched his own knitwear line ‘it knit‘ with four pixelated designs featuring men, women, cats and dogs.


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.’
