Human beings are very complex animals. They often have two or even more completely different ideas going on in their minds. For example, they have only one pair of legs, but it always takes a long time for them to decide whether they should put on a skirt or a pair of jeans in the morning. It is our nature to be waffling between the choices,and Splicing Fashion is the life-saving solution that enables our wishes to meet at once.

For the designers, the use of splicing in fashion design is not just a skill, but a way to change the current situation of clothing. It represents the breakthrough of the competitive modern fashion industry and shows an even more variety of arrangements of fabrics and colors. However, before the splicing technique has become an artistic expression, it was born upon the functional requirements. In the early days, spliced, or cut-up techniques were widely used on metal armor for the purpose of comfort and protection reasons. As for the masses in poverty in the past, splicing, or so-called patchworks, were the solutions of their relative difficult life. Those who cannot afford to buy complete fabric collected the broken pieces, and rely on the mothers’ sewing skill to make a new dress, from which they formed a unique style and has become a source of inspiration for the fashion designers nowadays.


The splicing products are more unique than the basic apparels, and the key is the harmony that designers find between the colors and textures of the fabrics. The combination of two kinds of infrequent occurrences, regardless of balance or conflict, activates a more lively and diverse possibility through splicing and creates a refreshing visual impact.

Pattern/ Colour splicing

Color is one of the important key factors of the fashion industry, as the choices made indirectly reflect the overall atmosphere of the designs. The most common splicing technique would be the reorganization between the colors because of its wide range possibilities. The shade changes within the same colour give the design a sense of layering and harmony; in comparison, the splicing of within the hue that chooses some slightly different colour of the same hue, makes the design richer and more varied, yet still maintains a stable dynamic at the same time. The use of complementary colours is regarded as a more difficult task, as it shows the mastery of the tone of the colours of a designer. However, the whole fashion industry has never succumbed to the nuisances, and has always keen on self-challenge (or self trouble-seeking if you ask me…), therefore, some simple splicing between colours are certainly not enough for them, and here is when the patterns splicing joins the party!



This piece of red plaid trench Coat is an excellent example of large-area colour block splicing. The earth-toned windbreaker features remain on the front with only some plaid lumps stitched around the cuffs and shoulders, making the whole coat playful but classic. On the back side, the same red plaid is used to make a large-area colour block splicing, which injects a sense of youthful vitality, yet does not appears excessively blocky or chaotic.



The other skirt is a low-key display of the same splicing attribute. The designer used the suede as the base, subtly blending the geometric checked lines on both sides and front of the hips with the same cool toned colour. The balanced combination slightly modifies the hip line and adds highlights to the vision, making the skirt more interesting than others.

Splicing between different materials

Splicing between different materials often occurs on two fabrics with different texture and properties. The combination of such conflicts can quickly break the established impression of the fabrics and bring a new feeling.



The combination of such conflicts can quickly break the established impression of the fabrics and bring a new feeling. The interesting combination of soft and hard materials is a very common method of splicing. For example, when the stiff and wear-resistant denim fabric meets some soft and flexible textures, the latter will add a sense of gentle, casual and warm to the denim.
You won’t believe how fashionable this simple piece could make you!
