Fashion brand ANNAKIKI presented their Fall Winter 2022.23 collection, that explores a cybernetic future where imagination and matter coexist, On February 25th, during the ongoing Milan Fashion Week. The Post-Human Code collection brings the brand’s iconic cross metal meteor and classic 3D wave sleeve shape, with the super-long silhouette that represents an enhanced version of the human body. It strips back traditional sexuality and returns human’s to their essence. For the season, designer Anna Yang also explored a virtual identity built on the real existence, and launched a Metaverse project, a series of NFT virtual fashion looks coded the material existence of the brand’s Fall Winter 2022 Collection.
Whichever direction post-humanity evolves, I hope that the way these evolutions take place will lead to a reflection on the morality of the human self, as a way to reconceptualize our relationship with the natural environment – Anna Yang
“In the center stage of our runway this season “Returning the Gaze” – an cyber-physical Robotic Installation by Los Angeles based artist Behnaz Farahi* in collaboration with Universal Robots was put together. It was designed to have 4 robotic arms, each holding a monitor, these arms will become an extension of the model who is now a cyborg, watching everything that is happening in the runway and the audience through her enhanced viewing abilities.” – from Annakiki
