On July 1st, 2019, Iris van Herpen presented her 2019 Couture collection, Hypnosis, at Élysée Montmartre in Paris. The collection is inspired by the hypnotic manifolds within our ecologies through the work of American artist Anthony Howe. The three-dimensional cyclical harmony of Howe’s kinetic sculptures is the wind beneath the wings of this collection. Howe's spherical ‘Omniverse’ sculpture explores our relationship with nature and intertwines with infinite expansion and contraction, expressing a universal life cycle. The meditative movement of the ‘Omniverse’ serves as a portal for the collection and the models, encircling a state of hypnosis. Hypnosis reflects the beauty and complexity of our environment, exploring the patterns and structures within its fragile landscape.
