Designer Li told blog dezeen that

“…traditional knitwear is more soft and shapeless. I wanted to find out a new way to present knitwear and was influenced by Modern architecture and 60s Balenciaga.”

According to stylebubble, she also makes use of old jeans and processes them to create a knitting yarn. So jeans are remade as a soft knitwear and knitwear is remade as a form-holding silicone bells and bulbs.  Using moulds, Li created sculpted silicone bell shaped sweaters and dresses, pushing a material normally used in industrial and commerical settings.
