WK.P-03 "Flexible Armor II"
Succeeding from the annual subject "Flexible Armor." In the A/W season, nozzle quiz launches three accessories focusing on the functionality of convenience and warmth retention. The collection is reconsidering in multi-aspects for the needs of local urbanites' city life including providing the accessory for convenience, windproof, cold resistance, and warmth retention.
Flexible Armor: Redefining the Relationship between Human & City
The modern urbanite resides in convenient cities but is never truly free from environmental challenges. Climate is one of the first and foremost challenges to tackle; whether it be the glaring sun, howling winds, rain, or air pollution, people must consider how to assemble their outfits to prepare them for the weather challenges of the day. The concept for "Flexible Armor" is a winding air duct that extends infinitely, a metaphor for the inextricable link and complex relationship between cities and humans.
Designs of Convenience Using Functional Materials
Accessories in the "Flexible Armor" collection deliver sun protection, rain protection, and breathability. The convertible and stowable functional designs utilize nylon materials, jointly developed with a Taiwanese functional fabric manufacturer, that is lightweight, tear resistant, water repellent, water permeability resistance, and has ventilation holes. The nylon material undergoes an additional creasing process for a metallic sheen. For the collection, nozzle quiz also collaborated with the R&D department of Chemtax Far East Industrial to create a pseudo-scale armor knitted belt using CORDURA® yarn, known for its resistance, and FIDLOCK® magnetic fasteners for maximum convenience.
