With Reduce, Mette Julie Bundgaard-Nielsen brings the traditional lace technique into a new millennium. Reduce is a lace jacket that fits equally well into the new steampunk fashion trend and into a fetishist underground nightclub, and even if the work is a far cry from the concept of lace as a traditional needlecraft associated with domestic middleclass pursuits, Reduce still represents true mastery of both a traditional craft and an aesthetic tradition. 200 individually made triangle lace modules have been hand-sewn together in a ’honeycomb system’ that achieves a three-dimensional effect. The lace modules are mounted on a shoulder section and a loose collar made in butt leather and sewn with traditional saddle stitches. The jacket is sustainable, as the lace is made of old discarded jeans and anti-bacterial fibres, and butt leather is a durable long-life material. The lace can be detached and folded into a sextant, which can be pressed to
preserve its three-dimensional form. The materials are kept in light colours, both in reference to traditional lace-making and as an interpretation of the simple and natural style of Scandinavian design.
