  • Shape as a Shelter is a collection of experimental menswear. The aim of the thesis is to explore material-based design and develop a narrative concept for the collection and the brand.

    Ethnographical photographic documentation and the story of C. G. Mannerheim’s expedition across Asia from 1906 to 1908 were the main sources in a research and design process that interpreted photos from the perspectives of aesthetics and functionality.
    During the process the ordinary notion of clothing transformed into ideas about wearable structure.
