VORTEX

  • The threeASFOUR Spring Summer 2011 collection focuses on the whole connection to the hole and the hole to the whole, as to connect the holes in the clothing construction technique, connecting the dots how the energy flows: armhole, neckhole, leghole, hemhole, waisthole, cuffhole and headhole.
     
    Fascinated with how the black hole attracts matter and emits light, threeASFOUR treats their Spring Summer 2011 silhouette in the same manner as light & shadow. On the evening of September, 14 22 looks where presented as contrasting sisters, as the interpretation of the body and its shadow.
