1×1 Studio presenting the SS20 collection during LFWM.

1×1 Studio is a label born in 2017 by Yi-Ling Kuo. It is a contemporary luxury lifestyle brand who creates 3D playful textures in knitwear and brings out a new texture world of fashion cycle.

1×1 Studio presents a playful knitwear collection with the aim of bringing out new textural approaches from common fashion materials. In her art and garments, designer Yi-Ling focuses on recycled fabrics, specialty yarns, and crafted techniques to continuously push the boundaries of knitted and woven designs.

Each season, 1×1 Studio challenges themselves to explore more environmentally conscious avenues to fashion and design.

Drawing inspiration from Kaohsiung, Taiwan, this Spring/Summer collection binds together the bucolic, industrial, and structural scenes of the designer’s hometown. Khaki, baby blue, orange and green colours continue this majestic aesthetic using sweet corn yarns, paper yarn, and recycled bottle fabrics. Experimenting with the thickness and textures of these materials, the collection sees 3D knits that challenge most logistical and visual expectations.

With communal participation, and a focus on the collective good whilst still providing personal luxury, 1×1 Studio aims to change the fashion landscape one consumer at a time.
