Marvielab 2012: Cumbini

The theme for Marvielab’s annual, 2012 collection centers around the concept of combinations. Thus, Cum+bini (Latin etymology for the term 'to combine') focuses on the combining 'by twos' as the foundation of the creative process both in the collection's fabrics as well as its designs.

that overlaps the shoulders providing a beautifully placed contrast in materials.
Patch pocket design provides flexibility, so the shirt can be worn as a cardigan.

The fabrics, developed exclusively for Marvielab and the new volumes unveiled for the 5 ongoing projects unveil her deep exploration in the deconstruction and reorganization of classic wardrobe staples with an ongoing study of form and function. Construction is elaborated upon from a design perspective and materials favor natural materials with trans-seasonal flexibility.

The concept of Cumbini is expressed by combining pieces and their contrasting details. The pairing of fabrics for different layers or matching the contrasting details of the outer layer, with the fabric of the interior, creates a functional expression as the collection of fabrics are mutually integrated among the different Marvielab projects.

The materials have been developed to be a cohesive extension and are principle factors within the concept of this body of work, with the final aim of advancing the idea of the clothed body and its reflected image.
