Xavier Brisoux
Diving into knitwork

Specialist in knitting work, Xavier Brisoux develops clothing collections for his brand and transcends technique to designing entirely knitted sculptures.

After studying fashion design in Belgium and England, Xavier Brisoux specialized in knitting at Central Saint Martins in London. In 2005, during London’s Fashion Week, he launched his first collection of clothing knitted with wool and cashmere yarns. 

If his mastery of knitting techniques is initially limited to the study of garment volumes, it led him very quickly to a freer format of expression. His creations are detached from the body and the usual functionalities of clothing. Therefore, yarns become real sculptures stitch after stitch and row after row, taking advantage of the duality of the textile, its dichotomy between fragility and resistance.

As part of TRICOLOR, Xavier Brisoux created a sculpture entirely made of French wool, exhibited at Made in Town and intervenes on February 6, 2020 at the fifth edition of the cycle of conferences Les Rendez-vous Filières about knitting and stitching at the Institut Français de la Mode in Paris.
