PFW: AALTO Fall Winter 2017.18 Women’s Collection

Designer Tuomas Merikoski presented his fifth collection for AALTO during the Paris Fashion Week. For Autumn Winter 2017/18 collection named Paradise lost Merikoski investigates classicism, sustainability, pragmatism, utilitarianism and resistance


AALTO establishes a parallel between liberal freethinking, feminism and ancient, secret societies, such as freemasonry, who through the use of complex symbols and rituals have established a structured belief system that fuses nature, science and mysticism. Merging resistance, subculture, fantasy and an inclusive reality AALTO draws on this symbolism to create uniforms for the yet to be born travelers, and the next generation of great explorers, and resilient women who navigate their own course, seen in the airbrushed fantasy prints within the collection. The collection’s vision of the future has echoes of Blade Runner juxtaposing the old and with the new; creating a quasi-chaotic aesthetic, as opposed to a future that is sterile and dehumanized as seen in Gattaca, another film that has had a strong influence on the collection. – from Aalto
