Chromat began in 2010 as an extension of McCharen’s degree in architecture. Her continued interest in scaffolding, city maps, wearable exoskeletons and the intricacies of undergarments have been explored as each new collection develops. Chromat focuses on structural experiments for the human body.
The Chromat S/S 2015 “Formula 15” Collection was inspired by the parallel ideologies of conceptual artist Sol LeWitt’s Wall Drawing Series and the process of tracking athletic movement through the use of wearable technology. "Formula 15" Collection imagines a world where clothing will be downloaded online and garments will function as data machines to both observe and empower the reality of our bodies.
