Graduation 2016 Project

Loes van Els

Department: Man and Identity


The ‘STRAP’ series of fashion accessories created by Loes van Els offers futuristic suggestions for reinforcing fabrics and accentuating or adjusting the wearer’s silhouette. The hard-wearing elastic yarns, cables and straps add posture, strength and protection for use during demanding physical activities like urban sports. In addition, they add some spice to the overall look of the outfit with the tactile and colourful plains, twills and honeycomb weaves, all of them hand-woven and some even three-dimensional. STRAP paves the way for a new youthful and sporty look thanks to these textured, figure-hugging pieces.
