Exaggerated cuff from Sang Yoon's 2014 fashion collection, Quadrivium, at Central Saint Martins, London. "I have an obsession with ideas of numbers and geometry that carry symbolic meanings of protection," said Yoon. "I have a fantasy of women going to court for a divorce, and my vision is to bring these women confidence and protection through my obsession with the quadrivium."

Kay Sekimachi‘s “Kunoyuki.” Bay Area artist Kay Sekimachi. Using nylon filament woven into flat bands, Sekimachi constructs forms that combine spilling and falling with symmetry and structure. Her material looks as fragile and evanescent as cobwebs or clouds. In fact, it’s the same slender but tough material from which many heavy works in the show are suspended.

Boro: This is a patched work coat, or noragi, that likely never began as a full garment, but was rather made from multiple, very small patches — some of them the size of a postage stamp — that were all sewn together to create an area of cloth, and then layered.
