Xiao Li’s Silicone Knitwear

Written by Guest Blogger Ashley Schulzetenberg


Royal College of Art graduate Xiao Li combined pastel knitwear and three-dimensional spacer fabric to create a collection of marshmallow proportions. Moulds formed from knitting samples produced jackets and skirts of patterned silicone material. Inspired by modern architecture and 60s Balenciaga, the designer, who spoke to Dezeen about her collection, used a soft candy-colored palette to highlight the large thick sleeved jumpers and crochet neck detailing.
