Garment for the rebels, sociopaths, kinkies. Madly tailored by an obsessive and compulsive designer. Started from 2011.
We specialize in structure, cutting and pattern. Through flawless lines built by experienced skills. We have everything you’re looking for exclusively here in INF.
The inspiration of the 2022 Spring/Summer collection comes from the concept of translation and transformation, “translate (transform) 2D to 3D, translate (transform) people to soul, translate (transform) hate to love.” We learn to see things from different perspectives through translation and transformation, and the essence of an event is not that absolute. We have also obtained some unexpected gains in the process of translation and transformation, which is different from a little happiness in life, it is learning to see the world with a more macro and open-minded perspective.
Details of the collection was inspired by elements such as early local beliefs and local monsters in Taiwan, and collaborating with the most famous domestic animation ”Grand Mother & Her Ghost” — which will be re-released in the theater this December —- and characters from the movie such as Kuro (the cat), Xiaobian (the snake), Apple (the soul of a little girl holding a doll) are used as inspiration and elements in the collection. By paying tribute to the film editing technology “Montage”, characters are combined with handwritten brushstrokes, which can be seen in the local folk beliefs in Taiwan, in a collage method to create a full and colorful print.
In addition to showing local beliefs and culture and early customs in Taiwan through fashion, this season also uses the painting technique of "Trompe L'oeil", which turns 2D into 3D. We constantly observe the changes in light and shadow of daily fashion, and transform them into different shades of color blocks to imitate the light and shadow and details in the characters of “Grand Mother & Her Ghost”, and apply them to create a print on the garment, make you look like a come-to-life animation character when you put on the whole outfit.
The plane (2D) looks like a three-dimensional (3D), which echoes the theme of this season: Translate. By translating and flipping the charm in 2.5D between the plane and the three-dimensional, a modern print which is full of personality and a little cuteness is created. INF is constantly "taking culture as the foundation and fashion as the carrier", and reinterprets the diverse cultures and stories of Taiwan's ancient and modern times through the production of clothing collections.
INF continues their signature deconstruction pattern and cutting. A transformable and mult-ways garment is created by constantly deforming and reshaping traditional patterns. Representative clothing of men and women are being deformed and reshaped in this season, and represented as the combination of miniskirt and shirt, or styling garters and sock with suit, etc. The softness in masculinity and toughness in women are presented through combining the characteristics of garments in two genders, shaping the brand’s philosophy of unisex.
The cutting of the shirt is oversized, it not only allows the shirt to keep the looseness and rebellious visually in oversized design, but also can make you look slimmer and make it look like a classic formal shirt. Two pleats are extended from the collar to the hem and cut in the middle to create layers. The cut is finished with jets which can be seen on the pocket of the suit jacket. A flap made with Japanese high quality satin is extended from those pleats by patterning technique to the right to keep it balanced visually.
We pay tribute to our beloved American artist Alex Meade, who is good at a painting technique “Trompe L’oeil” which turns 2D to 3D. She uses human body or 3D objects to be her canvas and paints these bodies or 3D objects to become a flat 2D form of art. By constantly observing the changes in light and shadow of daily fashion, and transform them into different shades of color blocks to imitate the light and shadow and details in the characters of “Grand Mother & Her Ghost”, and apply them to create a print on the garment, make you look like a come-to-life animation character when you put on the whole outfit.
It not only can be matched with the bottom with the same print as a total look, but also can be matched with the most common deconstructed wide pants or pleated pants in the brand to create layers, or matched with formal trousers or more casual floor length pants to show the special design on the top’s cutting. It can be matched with skirts for ladies to show a low-key yet gorgeous aesthetic.
