“Object 12-1” by Matija Cop 

Our bond with our city – or any city – can be sartorially interpreted in many ways. Croatian up-and-coming designer Matija Cop is introducing his very own proposal around that concept. “Object 12-1” is a collection born out of inspiration from buildings and architecture, and produced out of a contemporary material that mimics the qualities of stone. 

Matija Cop

Cop, who before entering the world of fashion design studied philosophy, has put his knowledge to good use by connecting man’s identity to the city’s identity through beautiful, dramatic clothing.

Object 12-1 is an end-product of his university experiment in the multiplication of material which he performed as a student of fashion design with the help of her mentor Jasminka Končić. In the production of this piece of clothing, a contemporary material is used whose original qualities were preserved to the same degree to which the qualities of the stone used for the construction of the cathedral were preserved.

The material feels like EVA or rock when you touch it, but its original look is completely changed. OBJECT 12-1 is created with the use of the laser cutter and the “plug and feather” mechanics. Its production lasted for three months. The Šibenik cathedral is a chiseled stone building dated from the year 153. Both objects are atypical for their field (fashion and architecture): they exemplify a very inventive use of material, and spontaneously express their own visual culture forming a “cape – suit”
