Presenting the abstract collection that ultimately screams “wearable art,” Amsterdam-based duo Viktor & Rolf draped their models in a range of aesthetic sheets and broken picture frames. The innovative display hosted at the Palais de Tokyo during Paris’ Haute Couture Autumn/Winter, encompassed a sense of organic deconstruction;

“A dress transforms into an artwork, back into a dress and into an artwork again. Poetry becomes reality, morphing back into fantasy.” said the duo. (Ignant, 2015)

Adopting sheets and minimalistic design, the Birgit Toke Tauka’s collection is intricately shaped into steam-bent curves following the complex shapes of the female body. Utilising European walnuts and grey wool felt, this presentation draws on the biodiversity of nature as well as geometry. (Ignant, 2015)

Spanish based designer Yulia Yadryshnikova‘s  multi-purpose mustard yellow dress has a range of features, the draped material has the ability to unfold and serve as a cover for designer Luca Nichetto‘s most recent sofa.
