Knitwear designer Michel Bergamo and architect/photographer Cristina Zamagni collaborated to create Boboutic in 2000. Taking everyday experience and injecting it into their knitwear, the designer duo creates innovative pieces in which traditional knit-and-stitch techniques are combined with a constant research for new materials and production methods.
One of the designer duo most important objectives is to find new ways for the knitwear to tell its own story. The yarn, considered as an endless line, is ideally kept intact by rejecting the use of scissors in the making of the garments. Boboutic designers consider knits an ideal medium, since its versatility allows conceiving unique surfaces and unexpected shapes. Boboutic’s approach to knitwear is unpredictable, aiming at creating a product where materials and structures compensate each other.
