AW ODYSSEY / Catwalk
ODYSSEY - MERCEDES-BENZ FASHION WEEK AMSTERDAM, JAN 2015,
ODYSSEY is inspired by Kubrick’s evolutionary cut from primates to digital era in Space Odyssey 2001. That link is closely related to Nietzschenian allegory of a man as a bridge between the ape and the Übermensch. Outfits throughout the collection are exploring the transformations between those two remote endpoints by referencing few masculine archetypes throughout our history.
“...We are semicivilized, capable of cooperation and affection, but needing some sort of transfiguration into a higher form of life. Man is really in a very unstable condition.” (Stanley Kubrick)
