haha...i love susie's little blurb
I found some info on him. I thought he said something funny about weaving. So true!
And a bit about his process...
I think it's a nice show. I like the wide variety of material surfaces
Inspired by a 1915 Iowa State University yearbook called “The Bomb,” Tom Scott interpreted Americana sport with retro silhouettes and a palette that ranged from girly to futuristic hues. He was most successful when subverting conventional knitwear. After all, it’s not easy to make old gym shirts look downright feminine as he did with an open-weave cropped sweater paired with cashmere briefs. Scott turned metallic raffia into a basketball net weave while other fun knits included a sweet polka dot cutout T and an asymmetric striped oversize sweater.
all from wwd
^thanks for adding those gius! i don't have a subscription to wwd so i didn't get to see them.
i love those big chunky,one-off style pieces and that black cowl neck knit is up my alley too.
His work always seems unremarkable to me in presentation photos but in person they are FANTASTIC. Really really beautiful and special pieces. He's definitely not your typical fashion designer.
mmmm ... some of those boys in those short shorts
why couldn't they have been in my gym class!
