Digital Fashion: Computer-Generated Yet Paradoxically Natural
Zarezankova is deeply fascinated by the asymmetry in nature and by projects of sustainable architecture, notably farmscrapers. Housing a miniature forest, solar panels and wind turbines in each ovular segment, these urban forests take the shape of stacked rocks sculpted by years of running water, which is then transposed by Zarezankova into irregularly-shaped, padded digital nylon densely packed on this Blueberry mini dress. Apart from its tiered construction, the blobby one-piece features a one-shoulder strap and a royal purple palette for a touch of modern elegance.
MAGDALENA AMADO Fire Dress
Resembling a flickering flame, folioles of printed fabric are strung together to form this Magdalena Amado dress. Fire is indisputably one of the most important elements that catalysed human evolution, aiding mankind to survive in colder climates as well as to ward off predators. Rendered in plastic yet contradictorily generating zero waste, the abstract robe is purposefully casted in a reddish brown tone and is covered with multiple overlays, which convey the notions of preventive camouflage and the feeling of extreme warmth.
VARVARA KORZUNINA Plated mini dress
In celebration of the joy in life and the beauty of the physical world, Varvara Korzunina’s mini dress is punctuated by a pleated digital organza fanned out on the chest, evoking the mollusc seen in Sandro Botticelli’s The Birth of Venus. The glamorous piece is refined with a stand collar and an asymmetric hem while its pearlescent textile uplifts the aesthetic with a mythical lustre.
DIGIT IN AGENCY FEAT. KREAMONZ GENTLE SUN FUR COAT
The warm sunlight of a spring afternoon is portrayed in this single-breasted coat from Digit iN Agency. Hits of neon yellow on the digital long-pile fur of a tropical animal are juxtaposed with darker splashes of orange on the collar and body, whilst its fuzzy veneer goes well with leather or latex bottoms to exude a sensual appeal.
DRESSX “H2O” Athletic Skinny Jean Man
A wardrobe staple with a supernatural twist, these jeans are embellished with magnified water molecules hovering around the legs, boasting spherical atoms and slender, cylindrical bonds tinted in metallic silver for a futuristic shimmer. The pair is cut into a skinny fit and is decorated with a plethora of distressed motifs, completing a streetwear look with a monochromatic T-shirt and triple-white sneakers.
