FW21 theme: Torqued Spiral

An unexpected journey in space is now sailing towards a new direction. The Syzygy aircraft continues its journey of sailing in space and traveling through time. Alongside the Torqued Spiral in the space, Syzygy leads its audience into a brand new era of Syzygy.

Syzygy FW21 has constructed a new theme - “Torqued Spiral”, and is ready to lead the audience into a brand new stage of its one and only space journey. For this season, Syzygy considers the twisted star track as the main inspiration for design and at the same time wants to start a brand new journey through space as an introduction of the breaking dawn for this depressing period of the fashion industry. With the “Torqued Spiral” as the main inspiration for this season, Syzygy is aiming to create garments with multiple possibilities.

For the material of Syzygy FW21-Torqued Spiral, the brand uses top quality Milano wool and local polyester yarn and fabric. With high-quality materials, Syzygy will again combine its multiple specialized design methods such as digital knitting, digital print design, and laser cutting.

Syzygyがこれまで続けてきた思いがけない宇宙の旅は、いま、新たな方向に歩みを進める。Syzygy FW21は、「Torqued Spiral」をテーマとし、オーディエンスを宇宙の旅の新たなステージへと導く。今シーズンのデザインのインスピレーションは、ねじれた星の軌跡。ファッション業界のこの憂鬱な時期の夜明けを表現するため、時を超え宇宙を旅する新たな旅を始め、様々な可能性を秘めた衣服の創造を目指す。

Syzygy FW21「Torqued Spiral」の素材には、最高級のミラノウールとポリエステル糸と生地を使用。高品質な素材を使用し、デジタルニット、デジタルプリントデザイン、レーザーカッティングなど、Syzygyが得意とする様々なデザイン手法を再び融合させる。
