Rotterdam designer Martijn van Strien has created his own label and its first collection plays with laser cut unisex garments.
The collection uses heavy-duty PVC tarpaulin, to create these unique looks and each design is shaped using a laser cutter, which makes it easier to produce the pieces in custom sizes so they fit the wearer exactly. Bespoke patterns, altered shapes and other requirements can also be implemented easily.
Taking a parallel path to the opportunities 3D-printing brings to product design, this technique makes one-of-a-kind, custom garments possible to exactly fit the consumer’s size and demands – a 21st century approach to haute couture,

Though these clearly aren’t everyday wear this is a great indication of where the future of fashion may be heading.
