Waiting for something that’s out of the league? Now, it’s here to make you drool over its object concept and be awestruck.
Fashion designer Aitor Throup has presented a set of prototype garments on giant life size puppets instead of models at the London Collections: Men, this season. It made its debut on 12th June ’16 at the Holy Trinity Church, also known as One Marylebone.
This is a collection of trans-seasonal prototypes which will inform a fully and commercially distributed collection which is already being developed for January 2017 launch.
The concept pieces were made available for purchase on request as individually limited outfits from Dover Street Market in London from 14th of June 2016 until 6th of July 2016.
The show was split into three scenes. In the first, a white box placed in the center of the catwalk was hoisted to the ceiling to reveal a pile of fabric and sticks underneath. Subsequent looks, all in black and white, walked down the catwalk and masters pushing sticks from behind to emulate the movements of a real model.
When it reached the end, a young girl ran on and removed its dark mask, revealing a white face underneath.
Thus, the presented set of prototype garments on giant marionettes was highly appreciated for its peculiar object concept.
