SECOND SK:N TECHNICAL KNIT


This gallery explores the technical knit structures used throughout SECOND SK:N ski-wear collection, for compartmental purpose placement within an integral design.

Each textile has been carefully selected from Phoebe’s personal archive of technical stitches and refined to a design that will assist the body through additional second skin support. They have been rated on properties such as: extensibility, recovery, heat harnessing, high heat production, compression, joint support, bodily support and tissue movement restriction support.

The structures have also been selected due to their relationship with the chosen performance yarns, Celliant© and Merino wool. They exploit the benefits and properties of each of the yarns, as well as maintaining the desired Japanese aesthetic.

Each textile has been allocated to an area of the body that requires the supportive properties of each individual structure. Within the integral design, the structures are connected to overlay and provide a smooth second skin product.
