“The garment is what lies between the body and the world. The invisible, the air around the body is the space of possibilities for the garment – up to the nearest tangible element. What is this body-environment made of?
With her “Pneuma” collection, Flora Miranda makes this invisible matter, the ambient space, wearable on the human body. The dresses are built in meticulous manual craft. Bodies of fine reflective plastic particles, high precision injected silicone shapes, 3d woven metallic vaporised film and lightweight colour spectrums composed from feathers are set in motion. The shapes of the human body are abstracted and become one with the fleeting, sculptural clothes.
Each garment strikes with its own material qualities. Belgian choreographer Arco Renz explores these features by the explicitly breathing bodies of ten dancers. The presentation is highlighted with a light design by Philippe Rahm Architects: the performance takes place inside of two separate rooms, using hue variation to reflect the contrast between a winter and summer atmosphere. Through the use of warm and cold lighting, two distinct atmospheres create the physical setting of fashion, in the sense of an autumn-winter and spring-summer collection.“
