Iris Van Herpen FW 2014/2015
From Iris van Herpen’s fall 2014 rtw collection “Biopiracy”
"In the recent past, patents on our genes have been purchased. Are we still the sole proprietor of our bodies? From this question arises a sense of arrested freedom in one’s most intimate, solitary state. A mix of ready-to-wear and couture pieces is presented with artist Lawrence Malstaf -who specializes in the interaction between biology and physicality. Models float in the air, embryonic, seemingly weightless and in a meditative suspended animation."
