In Conversation: Carlo Brandelli and Nick Knight Discuss the Kilgour Film | Kilgour.

Carlo, you are back as freelance creative director for Kilgour. CB: Well, I was flattered that the new owners approached me to come back and, to quote them, ‘finish what I started’. You have engaged with Nick again as a creative collaborator. CB: We have a similar aesthetic and vision. Nick, you’ve worked with many well-known designers and houses over the years, including, notably, Yohji Yamamoto, Alexander McQueen and Yves Saint Laurent.

It’s an unforgiving stance at a time when traditional tailors are trying to find a relevant place for themselves in London Collections: Men.

Worldwide, apparel firms are experimenting with economical strategies that individualize clothing for each customer by offering a variety of design and fit options. Large and small, Internet as well as bricks-and-mortar companies are now making clothing "just for you. " Levi Strauss & Co. was the first large apparel company to offer mass customization when they introduced "Personal Pair" jeans, later marketed under the name "Original Spin", in selected Levi's stores. Consumers could customize their jeans by choosing from a selection of styles, fabrics, finishes, colors, leg-opening sizes, and inseam lengths. Individual measurements were taken by a salesperson.

Jeans fit was determined by inputting the individual's measurements and style selections into a computer program, and then trying on jeans that are kept in the store for that purpose. 300,000 Points of Light - Made in Britain eBook: Evan Davis: Kindle Store. Britain, the doomsayers would have you believe, is sinking in a dead-end economy in which manufacturing is reduced to an insignificant rump, replaced by burger-flipping and call centres. The common complaint, here as in the US and, no doubt, Japan, is "We used to make stuff...

The output of this process is a comprehensive image database. For each image in the database, we know the precise dimensions of the mannequin.
