Unit­ed Fash­ion event: Lille 2019

Tri­cote Moi un Tat­too is the sto­ry of two worlds that meet, the knit­ting world of our grand­moth­ers merges with the uni­verse trash” tat­too, mix­ing their dif­fer­ent sets of nee­dles. These col­lec­tions 100% Made in France find their sin­gu­lar­i­ties by the pres­ence of jacquard real­ized here as works of art. Behind each motif lie a sto­ry and a sym­bol­ic inher­ent in the world of tat­too­ing. The icon­ic fleece sweat­shirt turns into a sec­ond skin, let­ting us wear ephemer­al tattoos.

The col­or­ful streetwear brand was found­ed in 2014 by styl­ist Car­o­line Juteau. True knit­ting enthu­si­ast, it is on the banks of LISAA then Chardon Savard in Paris that Car­oli­na under­takes a dou­ble spe­cial­iza­tion in styling and knit­ting. To deep­en her know-how and tech­nique, she went to Brighton where she worked on knit­ting machines and then in Barcelona for screen print­ing.
Always drawn to the world of tat­too­ing, her imag­i­na­tion leads her nat­u­ral­ly to the mar­riage of knit­ting- that of our grand­moth­ers — and tattooing.

Pho­tog­ra­ph­er Vadim Oua­ki will join the adven­ture a few years. He made his weapons at Satel­lite, a brand of fan­ta­sy jew­el­ry, before embark­ing on the adven­ture TMUT. From the world of art to the world of fash­ion, Vadim brings his eyes and his sen­si­tiv­i­ty to the visu­als knits me a tattoo.
