With the inspiration of Taiwanese old school general store, INF 21AW “Time Machine “incorporated Grunge Art element into retro design with modern twist including the classic TTL (Taiwan Tobacco & Liquor Corporation) plates. With Kuo Wei’s admiration for The father of Grunge Art – David Carson, he showcase his Postmodernism artistic black humor through the process of deconstruction, rebellion and unfinished design techniques.
As always, INF revolutionize the traditional design drawing from constant reconstruction so as to come up his versatile series “One for all” together with Grunge Art style leaving the fabric untrimmed as high light. The pattern has several design revamps of convenience storefront outlook and logo adding Chinese characteristics, ink splashing, grease staining arrangement. With the aim of provoking black humor through Grunge Art design, you will find detail of electric embroidery taglines like “High end couture, craftmanship, made to measure, unique and original and quality guarantee”.
The combination of Grunge Art style with the vintage checkered prints and black fabrics gives the design a new vision. The pattern combines street style and formal workwear to create a conflicting but innovating punk culture. Patching and asymmetrical stitching techniques are used to achieve the bold and irregular effects unique to grunge. Grunge Art is also an art style which is born from Punk. Through this technique, it pays tribute to the Punk style and it also retains the delicate rebellious which can be found in Grunge Art.
To make the tailoring of the splicing part increase the sense of space and three-dimensionality, we made it with double-layered fabric, not with pure colored fabric, but two well-made patches. Layers of fabrics are stacked, and edges are finished with raw edge technique. Inspired by the image of a long shirt with a full front as the basis, the back body piece is cut into several centimeter-wide cloth strips with a delicate pattern on the back. The large pleats are made with this collections’s old-fashioned prints. With the dynamics of the body, the plaid prints will also be looming among the black cloth strips, showing a small but gorgeous beauty. Taiwan’s ancient taste culture is delicate and bold in your every move, both men and women can wear these over coats. After the waist is tied up through the straps on both sides, females can wear it as a dress. There are suit pockets on both sides of the front waist to enhance the details and there are slits on both sides to facilitate you for the trouser pockets.
