Geometric Nightmare is an experimental knitwear collection for Autumn/Winter 2011. By shaping intense volumes, Autie Carlisle explores the impact of geometric patterns and distorted silhouettes in the perception of the human body by the subconscious. Fragile totemic figures reveal the interplay of modern mythologies and the world of fashion.
‘This was a knitwear line I made as I learned how to knit- which later included wool and the common like, as well as rubber tubing- juxtaposing synthetic with natrual. Based on the archaic idea of geometrics becoming nightmares I played with taking 2d shape objects and merging them to create 3d shapes that wrap around the body.’
