Final Look

cytocouture – a Zero Waste Unisex Multifunction Clothing System

A detail of the hexagonal opening of the sleeves/tunic piece. On the right Emma is wearing the same triangular skirt in skirt and cape version. Evan is wearing a blue shirt-cape and a rectangular skirt.

On the left Evan is using the rectangular skirt, long and with the black side up, so the band shows the color. On the right Emma is wearing the same piece, this time short, as a mini skirt, and with the color side up so in this case the band is black.

Front and back views of outfits composed by tunic/sleeves (wore as sleeves) and triangular skirts. On the right Evan is wearing also a burgundy triangular band, notice how all the triangular shapes drape proportionally in his outfit.

A side by side of the same pieces wore in two different ways. Emma is wearing the long tunic on the left and the same piece as sleeves on the right. Evan is wearing a tunic and a red skirt on the left and the same pieces, sleeve version of the tunic and the skirt, with the black side on top, on the right. This is cytocouture: reversible, transformable, adaptable.

Description

Dr. Indolfi studies how endothelial cells behave differently according to the structure they grow in and cling to. We created a clothing system that is a metaphor of that idea. Depending on how clothes adapt to different body size and types, they can also affect dramatically the behavior of the person wearing them. Cytocouture is a Zero Waste Unisex Multifunction Clothing System.
