Editor’s Notes: Heliot Emil’s FW19 drop explores the idea of what is visible to the naked eye. The collection was inspired by pilots, who, as part of their training, are shown a flashing image of an aeroplane at 1/220th of a second and have to identify it. According to Heliot Emil, the highest record during one of these tests was 1/310th of a second, giving the FW19 collection its name “311 FPS” or 311 frames per second.
This idea of what can and cannot be seen was interpreted by designer Julius Juul as subtle black-on-black details on the technical wear, and design elements that can only be noticed when viewed from certain angles else they will be invisible.
