arkitektura

Fashion has always been inspired by elements of the world around us. Some designers choose nature, some choose culture, some choose art, some choose architecture. I have here a small selection of designs that really captured my attention with their interesting architectural elements. Feel free to share your thoughts! I would love to hear opinions, as I know that not all of these things are seen exactly the same way by everyone.









Theres a sort of ominous, futuristic quality within anything with such defined form. Perhaps our modern society isnt used to seeing such harsh edges in things that arent practical (i.e. buildings, tupperware, tables). Most people assume clothing should fit the body, but as it goes with 'wearable art,' the body is just simply a platform onto which these creations can be displayed. I love how unnatural these designs feel. Especially the knitwear one (the blue boxes one) - knitwear is usually associated with comfort (t-shirts, sweaters), but the juxtaposition of texture and shape make for an interesting statement about the creative possibilities within all fabrics. I suppose to create pieces like these, one must stop being a fashion designer and become someone of a different profession.
