I’m happy to let you know that one of the brands we featured previously, Tramp in Disguise, has launched a new womenswear collection for 2020 named ‘Unimated.’ If you missed it, we featured Sini’s story in Volume 4.
So what is so special about this collection? The collection takes its name from the first industrial robot, called Unimate that was generated by George Devol in the 1950’s. Sini found inspiration for this 2020 collection in Artificial Intelligence, following an article she read about how AI has the power to prevent climate change, along with other future environmental issues. AI is the “game changer” for climate change and environmental issues. Passionate about sustainability, the brand’s previous collections have been inspired by the impact of climate change. Therefore, having discovered that AI can quickly discern patterns that humans cannot, Sini was eager to explore this theme.
For the new collection Sini has created original prints that reflect the inspiration and feature elements of neural networks, drones, motherboards, elements of robotics and computer coding. Along with these colourful and intricate prints, the fabrics used throughout the collection include colour changing knits, tencel fabrics made from eucalyptus trees, rayon fabrics made from wood cellulose and bamboo jersey. The collection features dresses, printed jackets, jumpsuit, elegant jumpsuits, wrap skirts, colourful tops, shirts and trousers. Working towards a zero waste policy, the Tramp in Disguise has created accessories using fabric scraps of the garment production.
As always, each collection is made in-house in London.
The back story: Tramp In Disguise was established in 2010 by designer Sini Moilanen, Finnish born fashion and Textile designer who has qualified M.A. in Fashion Design specializing in knitwear design from Royal College Art. Whilst studying at the RCA, Sini taught herself print design and now her exciting prints and wearable silhouettes are the signature throughout each of her collections.
