Building Block is a design studio based in Los Angeles since 2011. Sisters Kimberly and Nancy Wu initiated the multi-medium project in Tokyo. Kimberly is a renowned automobile designer; she joined forces with her sister to develop Building Block as a side project. Nancy was previously footwear designer at Nike. The intention of each object the sisters create is to discard conventions of luxury by magnifying the essential and omitting the excessive. 

 

Building Block Spring Summer 2017 proposes a minimal line of bags and purses. The accessories have timeless and geometric forms. Each accessory is proposed either in black or white or pink as well as in transparent.

His first collection was presented in 2011 during Toronto Fashion Week.

Sid Neigum Fall 2017 was presented at London Fashion Week. The silhouettes are geometric and even mathematic as Sid’s patterns are crafted based on the golden ratio. Materials are fluid and often draped or wrapped giving a touch of gracefulness to the looks. The designer used a reduced palette and presented monochromatic garments. We spotted the interesting work done on knotting techniques especially on sleeves and puffed sleeves.
