Last Sunday night, at the beginning of fashion week, I met a very hopeful version of the future. The hessnatur show was the epitome of the direction I think fashion is headed in: supernatural fabrics in beyond modern designs.
This perfectly curated set of inspirations is fundamentally futuristic, and not a 1960′s-Jetsons way, but a very real glimpse into what’s coming. Iconic designer Miguel Adrover’s collection was Bladerunner meets The Hobbits, or maybe Mad Max meets Pan’s Labyrinth. It was insanely creative, gorgeous, textural, and monumentally fabulous.
Take note of organic fabrics that are sustainably sourced and the sculptural lines; a vision of the future than includes human beings living in real harmony with the Earth.
Philodendron; stitched merino wool lined with organic hand-dyed silk batik. I love that the leaves on this suit even have intimations of stomata (the normally microcsopic spaces through which plants breathe).
Don’t forget that you’re not only supporting me, you’re supporting families all over the world.
