UOOYAA Cosima Christa
Autumn Winter 2021
The UOOYAA Cosima Christa collection is the first of a brand-new experimental design series launched by UOOYAA, in collaboration with Ottolinger’s Creative Directors Cosima Gadient and Christa Bösch. This new series, UOOYAA Lab, aims to connect UOOYAA’s avant-garde design with international, independent, pioneering designers.
The first edition of this collaborative collection contains 12 pieces that merge traditional Chinese designs such as frog knot fastenings with Cosima and Christa’s signature asymmetrical designs. The collection tells the story of a person who is caught between past tradition and future innovation. This idea is reflected through the merging of traditional handicrafts and cutting-edge technology.
“We love how free-spirited, open-minded, and playful everything was working with UOOYAA. Our favourite design detail from the collection is the oversized puffy frog closing – we love the traditional frog fastening, as it unites beauty and function in a very unique way. They allow us to combine traditional and futuristic elements.” – Christa Bösch, Cosima Gadient, Creative Directors, Ottolinger.
The UOOYAA Cosima Christa collection is exclusive to UOOYAA.com in all countries outside of China.
