This is a men’s spring/summer activewear collection that was inspired by anatomy, specifically the musculoskeletal system. It uses seam lines that mimic and interpret the lines of the muscles, mostly of the legs and torso, and also reflective tape that references the spine. The fibers of the muscles also were used as inspiration for the print. In addition, there is a capsule collection of running shoes which draws detail from the bones of the feet.
Mens and Womenswear: Vermont Mountains
This is a men's and women's ski/snowboard collection with a focus on prints and accessory design. For this collection, I was inspired by the mountains of my home state, Vermont, where I grew up with skiing as a big part of my life. I used the state's mountain ranges on the horizon, topography, and leaves, to develop my prints.
Menswear: Commuter Cycling
This is a spring/summer menswear urban commuter cycling collection with a focus on print and graphics. It was designed to be comfortable and practical for casual cyclists who do not wish to look as though they are clearly wearing cycling specific clothing. As many people who commute via bicycle are environmentally conscious, the prints and graphics are of the three most prominent forms of alternative energy: wind, solar, and geothermal.
Menswear: Brand Project - Patagonia
This fall collection was designed with Patagonia in mind, and is men's active-casual line. It was inspired by the concept of "exploration", and took two routes: natural and urban. On the natural side, I was inspired by simple human structures in nature, such as hiking trails and old railways. On the urban side, I was inspired by abandoned buildings that were being reclaimed by nature. One other importance aspect of this project was the concept to develop a method of using natural dyes on synthetic active jackets that would be sustainable and not lessen the strength of the fabric.
