R! - UNTAMED STITCHES - A/W 2015

für R! by dominique raffa

an vienna fashion week

The Vienna-based fashion label R! By Dominique Raffa works at the intersection of conceptual design,art, technology and social consciousness. The work of R! intently examines material itself. The results of the material itself, scientific models and socio-cultural codes are mapped to the carrier, and combine contemporary urban street wear with traditional and futuristic elements. The current A/W collection UNTAMED STITCHES reintroduce traditional embroidery of patterns.The classic cross-stitch, an old tradition of craftsmanship leaves its domestic area behind to take over new territories in fashion. Untamed, Historic embroideries interweave with cymatic patterns to emancipate themselves from bygone handicraft domains. Specifically for this collection, the innovative label MESHUGGE by Kunsthandel Orth-Blau developed unconventional and non-conformist jewelry.
