It is Paris Haute Couture week and we are here for ALL OF IT. The cutting edge fashion, the couture gowns, the iconic collections and the phenomenal street style.

For the Couture Fall 2018, Iris van Herpen  was interested in a version of the opposite, what she described as “slowing down the movement of a fabric.” – Vogue

The show was titled Syntopia, meaning A future which is neither dystopic nor utopic,  but rather is essentially identical to the present.

The designer applies various techniques including chronotography – an old Victorian-era technique which captures some frames of a movement, combined into a single image. It is used here, in the lines of bird wing movements.

The collection is complex, interesting and futuristic. The techniques and effects employed make it interesting to look at. The drama and theatrics is exactly what we expect from Haute Couture week.

“These pieces are not necessarily here and now. They both connect to something that is coming and something that has already come.” – Iris Van Herpen, Vogue.
