BYBORRE's 8BIT Collection (SS18) now online, with a completely renewed website!
The time is here! We’re launching the Byborre 8-Bit Collection and with it a brand new website. You can now dive deep into the fabrics that were developed for this Spring/Summer collection and shop through each of the 26 products.
For this collection we worked with the warmer temperatures in mind, inspiring Byborre to use our signature knitting style and unique eye for colour to develop a beautiful, double layer jersey with a smooth face and a terry backside named the 8-Bit Jersey. Why 8-bit? The name comes from the 8 feeders that feed into our circular knitting machine which gives us ultimate flexibility to create gradients of colour within the fabrics. Each fabric is developed from the yarn up with a constant dialogue with our in-house knitting machine, crafted in our LAB and our team of knitting specialists. We’re presenting the next step in the evolution of the archetypes introduced with our Core Collection. This time continuing development on the fit and detailing like the wide range of pocket types found throughout the collection. We also introduce more defined colours and for the first time combined our signature knits with beautiful wovens, made by Majocchi in Italy.
The new website now gives us the ability to tell the Byborre story through different sections like Collaborations, Dialogues, and the Store. In Dialogues you will find in depth information on each of the Byborre collections and other ways that Byborre is in constant dialogue with our community and innovations. Within Collaborations you will find photos and details of some of the collaborations with other exciting brands that we are busy with, each showing off a unique Byborre knit. The store has products from our new SS18 collection, products from our Direct Drops, along with garments from collaborations with brands like Outlier.
BYBORRE is an Amsterdam based textile innovation studio working on the frontiers of material development, functionality and aesthetics through engineered knits. Over the past six years they have worked with clients such as Nike, Wings + Horns, The North Face, and Daniel Arsham.Signature to BYBORRE are the innovative hand-rendered techniques that, through direct interaction with their circular knitting machines, give the studio full creative freedom to play with patterns, colours, and textures within their fabrics. Designing from the yarn up allows BYBORRE to discover new possibilities both within their own collections and for leading brands. The archetypical clothing pieces in the studio’s own label tell an important story about the relationship between material and machine, along with introducing a new approach to fashion where process and product are equally important.
