"Design, for me, is the challenge of translating things that inspire me into something new and personal."
+
+
"The Wires 10.0 collection started when I found these amazing books about old 70s textile objects. They are very old fashioned but rich in colour, shape and technique."
+
+
"I modelled all the main pieces out of cord and yarn using just the basic knot of the macrame technique."
+
+
"The material and technique are the starting point and from there on I sketch and try things out."
+
+
"The atmosphere is something that builds itself along the way by choosing and mixing colours and shapes."
+
+
"My biggest inspiration source in general is PJ Harvey. I always connect my work to her music in a way."

Jantine van Peski studied at the Amsterdam Fashion Institute before attending the Fashion Department of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp, where she graduated in 2011 from a master (MA) degree with the stunning ‘WIRES 10.0’. Her work focuses on silhouette and craftsmanship and is marked by an innovative use of material. Here, Bullett gets a close-up look at Jantine’s process with WIRES 10.0.
