“To me couture is the best source of excitement in fashion. Our debut collection was mix between couture orientated fashion and ready-to-wear. With AV Couture, I hope to create a true couture atelier, which stands for traditional craftsmanship and perfection.
Working for my own label was always my biggest dream. AV Couture is an instrument to visualize our thoughts, and all the society’s absurdities we think are essential to tackle.” Vincent Lapp

En Julio 2014, Oscar Carvallo lanzó su colección couture Otoño/Invierno 2014, en París, bajo el título Save Our Souls (SOS). La innovación en el uso de materiales novedosos se destaca mucho en los diseños de Carvallo, utilizando accesorios realizados con balas y cartuchos auténticos. La colección de Carvallo finalizó con la participación del artista plástico Pancho Quilici, quien invitó a reflexionar a través de una estructura corporal acerca del papel de la vestimenta como refugio de supervivencia.

Richard Quinn

Spring Summer 2019
Quinn’s clothes conjure a couture fantasy, with unabashedly extravagant shapes and lavish embellishments. This season the look veered between thigh-grazing confectionary frocks and a more dramatic voluminous silhouette that tumbled to the ground and swept the floor. The floral cocktail dresses of last season were even frothier this time around, bold in the shoulder and replete with handfuls of bows along the sleeves. If that sexy, legs-for-days line evoked frivolity, then the longer, grander gowns readdressed the balance.

Presented on the cusp of the new millennium, Alexander McQueen’s Autumn/Winter 1999 collection for famed French fashion house Givenchy captured the new fascination with personalized digital technology in popular culture. At the culmination of the show, two models appeared outfitted in molded Perspex bodices studded with flashing LED lights and glowing leggings patterned like computer chips. The creation of a digital aesthetic and its intimate application to the body—an android-like amalgamation of the physical and digital—anticipated the “wearables” trend and the formation of the digital self. Known for his exquisite tailoring, meticulous detailing, and ambitious collections, McQueen also represented one of the remaining visionaries of haute couture extravagance.

MATIJA ČOP

Matija voulait créer des vêtements qui s’inspiraient de types historiques sans s’appuyer sur des techniques de construction traditionnelles. Il s’est consciemment abstenu de tricoter, de coudre ou d’adhérer pour développer un système expérimental de fabrication: les scans 3D du corps sont manipulés à l’aide d’un logiciel de modélisation, transposés en motifs découpés au laser 2D, puis rationalisés à travers des scripts en formes qui peuvent être imbriquées comme un puzzle. pièces. L’objet résultant est un polyèdre complexe sans aucune couture. Plus important encore, le processus qui le crée est une variation entièrement originale du tissage avec des possibilités illimitées pour un design novateur et une nouvelle construction. En associant manuellement des centaines de pièces uniques découpées au laser à un savoir-faire techno-couture, il rend tangible une pensée ambitieuse et intégrée. L’œuvre de Matija esthétise la curiosité en s’efforçant constamment d’authentifier la possibilité d’une véritable innovation dans la mode contemporaine.

Matija Čop

Matija wanted to create garments that drew upon historical types without relying on traditional techniques of construction. He consciously abstained from knitting, sewing, or adhesion to develop an experimental system of fabrication: 3D scans of the body are manipulated using modelling software, transposed into 2D laser-cut patterns, and then rationalised through scripts into shapes that can be interlocked like puzzle pieces. The resultant object is a complex polyhedron without any seams. More significantly, the process that creates it is an entirely original variation of weaving with unlimited possibilities for novel design and new construction. Manually interlocking hundreds of unique laser-cut pieces with techno-couture craftsmanship, he makes ambitious and integrated thought tangible. Matija’s work aestheticises curiosity by striving constantly to authenticate the possibility of genuine innovation in contemporary fashion.
