Prepare to enter the Spanish fashion house’s fairytale forest fantasy
Under Josep Font’s creative direction, the Spanish fashion house recreated a modern day winter wonderland within New York’s IAC building for its A/W 2015 collection.
Natural sunlight permeated the venue, reenacting a fantastical forest mise-en-scène for a show rich in both history and colour. An all white backdrop of densely packed 2-4 metre high trees, which encircled the models as they sashayed down the catwalk, was the perfect contrast to the vibrant colour palette of the pre-Raphaelite spirited collection.
The straight cut, simplistic 60-strong tree installation, produced by AO, was both statuesque and transparent, acting as a blank canvas for a show that possessed a painterly quality lending to the18th century artwork of Russian painter Andrey Remnev, and the animated, yet sinister imaginings of Australian artist Rhys Lee.
