We’re more than happy to admit that we are enduring fans of Patternity and all that they conjure up – it’s an admiration we made manifest in a feature in the Summer 2013 issue of Printed Pages. So when we found out that they were collaborating with clothing brand Chinti and Parker on a knitwear collection inspired by images of buildings and interlacing architectural structures, we were right up there on the bandwagon.
And not without good reason either. The range – based on the tessellation and geometric shapes Patternity know and love – is made up of a collection of 28 pieces and draws heavily on shapes which are then abstracted, repeated, gridded and enlarged. Is there any ground Patternity won’t cover with patterns which might have otherwise gone unnoticed in our everyday environment? I expect not. And that’s undoubtedly a good thing.
