INTER-NET COLLECTION 1.0

The world is changing, but we are too busy to notice. Infinite knowledge and entertainment is forever at our fingertips, luring us in with endless possibilities. We stare at screens more than we gaze into eyes, our souls slowly seeping into the world of zeroes and ones. Our virtual personas shower each other with likes and comments while we become ever more lonely, despite our numerous contacts. We are always online, but rarely connected through our beating, human hearts.

The iconic Inter-net collection from XV Atelier, with its four pieces, is an elegant and sustainable commentary on the present time as well as the future of humanity.

HUMANITY

 

Background:

Humanity tells the story of the value of just being human in a world where technology keeps advancing all around us at tremendous pace. Internet connects us, but it also offers a way to craft our personas to perfection, creating an unattainable image of the perfect individual. But where would we be without our most human traits, such as improvisation, compromise and empathy? Our flaws make us real and unique, and they also allow us to create true art. Humanity is made of Thai silk and comes in three different metallic shades. It mirrors our human abilities with its clean, humble design and is produced in the XV Atelier Studio in Borås.

INTEGRATE

 

Background:

Social media has created a need for us to commercialize ourselves, and our value as individuals lies in our online personas. Likes have become a status marker and a way to feel seen and warm inside, while actual human contact is becoming harder and harder to come by. The quilted pattern on Integrate represents the network, while it is long enough to wrap around a friend who craves some love, thereby representing the need for actual human contact. The supersized scarf shines a light on online integration, is made of quilted dead stock polyester from a warehouse and is produced in the XV Atelier Studio in Borås.

NET

 

Background:

This striking garment makes us conscious of how we use the Internet in order to drive engagement and organize ourselves efficiently around environmental issues. It also brings the subject of how we keep consuming, often online, thereby continuing to litter our planet. Net is a scarf entirely made of old fishnet, harvested from the sea by Sotenäs Symbioscenter in Kungshamn. It makes it possible to buy a new piece of fashion while also cleaning up the seas and is produced in the XV Atelier Studio in Borås.

VIRTUAL 

 

 

Background: 

Virtual portrays mankind’s step into the virtual world, and wants us to reflect on the moment when we lose touch of which world we actually inhabit. What happens when the boundaries between the online world and the physical world are blurred, or when they dissolve entirely? And which of the worlds do we prefer to live in? Virtual is a soft, luxurious scarf made of silk twill, printed in Denmark and produced in the XV Atelier Studio in Borås.
