ØYEBLIKK 2020 COLLABORATION

 

Jo Miller is a London based milliner focusing on concept and process led millinery within fashion based in London. Project-based rather than producing seasonal collections, she works experimentally between traditional and extreme millinery practices, utilising both high and low materials. 

Matthew and Jo met in 2018, when they understood their similarities with approach to design and ethos. Together, they developed a series of non-toxic resin pieces for Matthew Needham ØYEBLIKK 2020.

THE 'GLASS' BALLOON

 

With the balloon having great significance to the story of ØYEBLIKK, the headpiece becomes the centrepiece of the collaboration, initiating the development process for the other pieces.

THE RESIN MOUTHPIECE

 

An overpour at Central Saint Martins during the process of making STRUCTURE 01, the non-toxic resin mouthpiece was released on show day, with headphone cables becoming the final attachment method.

STRUCTURE 01

 

A spontaneous structure that became part of the collection presentation. STRUCTURE 01 was made to highlight the process of how the resin pieces were made. Using original elements from Jo Miller's studio, the installation was created by Matthew Needham to highlight the importance of the process to the final outcome.

THE WATER BALLOON

Using water-filled balloons to create the silhouette, the non-toxic resin exterior becomes a vessel for collecting and carrying mountain water. Sash window cord is integrated as a handle.
