Retro games are a massive trend his summer, another designer has took inspiration from thier childhood gaming. Knitwear designer Timothy James Andrew fuses Tetris, Transformers, Aztec and Apocolypto for his latest A/W 09 collection "A-BLOCK-A-BRICK-TOE".
Timothy James Andrews: My main inspiration came from the elaborate costumes worn in Mel Gibson's film Apocolypto, the Aztec geometric shapes, patterns and colours were mental. There's also a bit of Transformers and 60s sci-fi in there too. The patterns from the classic computer game Tetris became the inspiration for the crystal patterns on some of the pieces. I had great fun placing the beads together in a pattern, almost like playing the game!
