Layer me, is an ongoing research project in which Malou explores the possibilities of reshaping and layering textile elements on the body. Can we allay the desire of quick change in wardrobe by approaching clothes from a looser and layered perspective? Giving pieces different appearances, by for example layering, turn pieces inside out or wearing them in multiple ways. Eventually, it would be an ultimate goal to develop wearables that adapt, transform properties and appearances in harmony with the body and the environment. Approaching this concept for a low tech yet lucrative way is the starting point of this process.
