Returning from its recent Spring/Summer 2020 collection, Borre Akkersdijk’s experimental label BYBORRE has returned with its Fall/Winter 2020 collection lookbook. Titled “Edition 7,” the new range continues to exude the intelligent design ethos Akkersdijk has ushered in through his brand’s signature knit aesthetic.
Uniting with Dutch artist Jeroen Erosie and textile experts Meryl, the newly unveiled collection turns yarns and garments into knitted artworks. Various lines and graphics that resemble Erosie’s unique style have been directly knitted into each piece, bolstering BYBORRE’s open-source Textile Development Kit™. The pieces remain functionally in-line with much of the brand’s previous collections, whereby discreet pockets, zippered closures, and convertible styles using GORE-TEX INFINIUM and Woolmark Company merino wool fabrics make for dynamic silhouettes. BYBORRE has also designed a new type of knit titled WAFFLE™, a single-layer fabric resembling a waffle-like structure that, when worn next to skin, creates air pockets that trap heat.
All of this exceedingly-stylistic tech can be found in a range of adaptable outerwear pieces that feature detachable sleeves that have been complemented by quarter-zip hooded sweatshirts, the brand’s signature drop-crotch trousers, scarves, headwear, and button-down shirts. All pieces are offered in tones that nod to Erosie’s work, utilizing rugged industrial colors like Tar, Rust, Iron Core, Copper, Lead, Oily Blue, and more.
