Did you ever think that as an urban dwellers we barely can see a horizon line?
The horizon line is keeping us balanced and stable. It is a constant, an ancor of our perception of space, a line of support for our orientation in space. It is always on the same level with human eyes. Even when starting a sketch we first mark a horizontal, to where all the other perspective lines reach to.
In the urban environment the world is shrinked. The horizon is blocked by the bulky volumes of buildings. Eyes are tripping over the vertical lines never reaching the horizon. In winter city protects us, but in summer it rather makes us disoriented and willing to escape.
Probably that is why people hold out for the sea and valley. The main joy is the huge open and endless expanse, where your eyes don`t have any obstacle in front and you feel stable on the ground.

Mekoome summer collection HORIZON is a knitted metaphor of the space perception in and out of the city, where buildings turn transparent. Vertical volumes of the urbanscapes and long horizontal lines of the rural views turned into patterns and compositional elements for jumpers, t-shirts, dresses and beanies.
Handmade garments are knitted from high-quality Italian-made cotton, recycled cotton and linen, what makes them light and breathing.
