Domus Academy has always been working on the identity of its students as well as on an international approach to fashion collections, especially in a moment when the field is open to various levels of interaction with the market.
The designers presenting their work come from different geographical areas, different cultural backgrounds and they work on different themes, yet coherent to an identity-oriented approach to research.
Petra Sorejsova (Czech Republic)
Freaks Are Aristocrats
Petra Sorejsova’s work focuses on Diane Arbus production as well as on an ergonomic analysis of the human body, its limits and its natural decay. These references translate into a collection where organic cottons and leather accessories trace an allure able to evoke a dusty, aristocratic past where unnatural forms mark the borders of transforming bodies.
Moe Kudo (Japan)
The main objective of Moe Kudo’s collection can be summed up in one sentence: “whatever is human is uncertain by definition”. Human beings keep on elaborating definitions: forms, colors, states, time, yet everything is constantly evolving, even identity. The pure definition of one person is a lot more ambiguous than we can imagine. White, black, wools and cottons, menswear fabrics and laser-cut leather build a timeless, evolving identity.
Zeynep Guntas (Turkey)
Zeynep Guntas’ collection is inspired to experimental electronic music, to the dystopian movies of the 90’s, to the melancholy and dark humor of Ai Weiwei and Maurizio Cattelan. The project interprets the new generation of today and tomorrow, reflecting on the past. Ethnic details, hand-made on technical materials are combined to the functionality of essential shapes. An agender approach for a collection, which presents garments in light-weight wool, with a sportive touch, reversible coats, double, jumpsuits and sweatshirts.
Pauline Yuen Pui Ling (Hong Kong)
The collection Kinesphere comes from the analysis of the artistic expression of Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker and Rudolf Laban’s notion of kinesphere: “the sphere around the body whose periphery can be reached by easily extended limbs without stepping away from that place which is the point of support”. The collection recreates the fluidity of movement through the draping of light silks, constrained into a metaphorical kinesphere of leather cages.
Özlem Koca (Turkey)
Re-Generation comes from the convergence of images related to different moments, places and processes. Elements of style borrowed from the 20’s and 90’s interact one with the other, fusing into silhouettes rich in embroideries, plays of materials and overlays.
Keita Ebihara & Elizabeth Soon | AMETSUBI (Giappone, Singapore)
The collection embodies the worlds of the two designers, their background and a strong attitude for a sophisticated and essential product. The research in garment construction, in the volumes and details, and in the textile materials, as well as a constant dialogue between cultures and imperfections concur to re-design a new idea of daily wear.
