“ X·V ”
WISDOM® 2021 AUTUME WINTER COLLECTION｜IMAGE
Yet, global rules are once again changed in an instant. The reassuring, repetitive cycles that we’ve grown attuned to are jeopardized by unpredictable non-linear time sequences and multidimensional trajectories. The active consciousness of sustainability and symbiosis highlights the rebound of human evolution. Perhaps the torrent of digitalization shall ultimately wither down to compilation and limitation. The only thing that remains unchanged is change. Before the apocalyptic end arrives, let us look up into the sky and shape our very own beliefs.
Inspired by the vast expanse of our cosmic space and complex quantum networks, WISDOM® launched the concept “X”; at the end of 2019 to design practical, creative apparel. Having since constructed a complete cosmic universe, WISDOM® has chosen “X”; as the theme of the 10th year anniversary campaign to showcase the unique designs of functional apparel. WISDOM® now enters its second decade and fifth season. The evolution of fashion around the globe has been inspiring and WISDOM® continues to explore important topics to fashion labels: the distance between humans, the relationship between humans and resources, and the contact points between humans and information. In the last SS collection, WISDOM® has been attempting to adopt mono-materials and 100% biodegradable accessories for a large part of the collection. By the AW collection, WISDOM® is close to fully adopting recycled materials and achieving a sustainable balance between market success and social responsibility. The AW collection is about going back to the basics of fashion design but also taking a step into the future by preserving our environment; “BACK and BEYOND”; was thus hatched for the AW Collection X·V Line.
For the 2021-22 AW X·V line, WISDOM® collaborated with major Taiwanese
textile producer - Shinkong Textile - to develop fabrics and was able to adopt various
recyclable polyester materials with strong tear strength, great durability, lightweight,
and eco-friendly C6 water repellent solutions. The goal is to deliver a lightweight, warm, wind-resistant, water repellent, and breathable functional design that can take on any temperature and climate changes while on the go. The design also incorporates staple military-wear elements such as storage and designs for greater mobility while lines are clean yet relaxed, offering a natural range of motion and a layered structure. WISDOM® continues to use a military-inspired palette that includes khaki green and earthy beige to complement the modern urban palette of black, white, and grey. The devil‘s in the details and, for the AW X·V line, WISDOM® is using brand name fasteners from SFS®, YKK®, and FIDLOCK® with additional graphics and tags for a touch of streetwear. The AW X·V line is WISDOM®’s contribution of sustainability to the latest season: the future is now and we will arrive!
