“Belgian designer Jan-Jan van Essche challenges the quick-turn format of the fashion industry by producing a single unisex collection each year that’s meant to be layered (pictured, Tunic #1). Another designer featured exclusively at TOC is Jason Rens, whose work experiments with scale and repetition. His process often remains a visual component of his pieces; the Non-Cube table (pictured) joins four triangular forms with a bonding agent that’s simply sanded and left exposed. The totem and models are also by Jason.”
