Lagos Space Programme - Aṣọ Fashion as Visual Oríkì

“Aṣọ (Dress) can be conceived as a visual form of oríkì, as the arrangement of patterns, colours, shapes, and textures on a figure can cohere into a powerful gestalt form–a ‘look’ –that is able to trigger an affective response in the perceiver. The Yoruba terms, ojú-inú (inner eye) and oju-ọnà (design consciousness) respectively refer to the intuitive and technical capacities required by an artist to engineer a visual or verbal oríkì that speaks to the subject’s ìwà, and in doing so releases àṣẹ. Ẹwà, meaning beauty, is the result of a work of art that realizes the art object’s essential nature, its inner character, its ìwà. Accordingly, aesthetic beauty cannot exist separately from a deeper ethical truth–a position that refutes dominant Eurocentric framings of aesthetics. The Lagos Space Programme conceives of clothing as oríkì, combining physical matter (colour and sound), non-physical matter (àṣẹ), and aesthetics (poeticism, rhythm, and proportion) to form resplendent pieces that reflect the ìwà of its wearers”.

An empty universe is a lonely place — even for a god. In a continuation of his explorations of the origins of Bumba, the vomiting creation god of Congo’s Bushongo mythology, Rich Mnisi takes us on a journey of self-discovery in SS22. This collection, Mafamba Yexe, finds its inspiration in a microscopic view of Bumba’s purge, made up of cells that, like so many others, split apart to multiply. Pain on the outside, pain on the inside, discomfort everywhere. From that discomfort, cells made echoes of their own likeness, and Bumba birthed the world. In every world, microscopic and universal, discomfort was the channel from loneliness to community. From strangeness to connection, to reflection, and eventually, to self-discovery. We return to vivid green, a grounding brand colour, meeting a fiery palette of yellows and reds across signature silhouettes. Abstract prints inspired by bacteria under a microscope creep across the body. Smooth and printed leathers lend lively tactility, while feathers offer a softer touch.

Miu Miu Spring/Summer 2024 Fashion Show

“What if I told you, you aren’t the hero in your own story but the villain in someone else’s?” In this special project for Miu Miu, artist Sophia Al-Maria offers us an old story with a new twist. Gravity ∞ Grace is a fairy tale ending (of the world) about a court jester and a royal guard who can’t agree if life is a tragedy or comedy. The pair gaslight, gate-keep and girl-boss each other in an epic battle over POV. Featuring original music by musicians Takiaya Reed and Scarlett Viney of Divide and Dissolve and starring stuntwoman Ayesha Hussain as archetypal twins, this one-minute recap formed the introduction to the unabridged story which played out during the Miu Miu Spring/Summer 2024 show in the Palais d’Iéna on October 3rd, 2023. Sophia Al-Maria’s expansive work across art, publishing, film and TV is united by an urgent question of perspective: if language and stories form our POV, how can we tell fantasy from reality?

Iris van Herpen ~ Meta Morphism


At Paris Haute Couture Week 2022, Iris van Herpen celebrates the fifteenth anniversary of the Maison with ‘Meta Morphism’. Holding a lens to our intangible identities and shifting society with the metaverse and hyperreality at the horizon, this collection explores the depths of the body in posthuman realities. With the new realms of our digital lives expanding, we are faced with an eternally rhetorical question: who are we beyond our physical bodies? Is the digital you shaping your pre-existing com- pass? Through 'Meta Morphism’, Van Herpen expresses the body as an elusive system, rooted in transcience and speaks to a greater message of introspection. The leitmotif of van Herpen’s history expresses the body in a state of permanent flux, metamorphosing with the milieu, and while the Maison is regarded for its futuristic approach, this season the designer reflects on Ovid's magnus opus poem ‘Metamorphoses’. At the time of Ovid’s writing, the act of metamorphosis was appreciated in relation to humanity and its place amongst nature, yet Ovid’s retelling exists a relevance today, navigating the ramifications of technology that is constantly complicating the definition of identity. With the ability to recreate our digi- tal twins, the space of soul-searching, losing a sense of self, and finding new realities, are life lessons. The collection examines the ancient visions of Ovid’s mythology through modern themes of transhumanism, where man and technology ex- ist in eternal fluctuation, thus defying classification, allowing us to question the limits of our self. Resounding the thematic tensions between artifice and nature, the collection is built around three myths, the story of Arachne; the story of Narcissus and finally the story of Daphne and Apollo. The tragedy of Arachne is translated in fine laces that are gradient dyed and trapped in embroidered webs, causing the trapped spiderwebs to float. Other looks are designed as if Arachne is still weaving them, hundreds of unspun threads float and spin around the body. The second myth behind the collection evinces the story of Narcissus, who falls in love with his own reflection, slowly languishing to death through self-obsession. The translucent layering and reflective textures of growth in this collection speak to a greater message of introspection. Transparent voluminous drapes echo around the body like ghosts, creating patchworks of shadows, designed to turn inwards on ourselves. Accents of dark blues and amethysts, ochres, metallic silvers and copper intersect the lucid palette. The ‘Narcissus’ gown and coat express the power of self-creation and the contradiction of how self-obsession can ultimatrly cause loos- ing your sense of self. The allusion to Daphne and Apollo is betokened through the finale look, embodying the very moment that Daphne transforms into a laurel tree, while the 'Glitched Growth' dress and other looks mimic the alternate stages of Daphne’s metamorphoses, diffusing the creation of plant and bone structures growing together. These looks are designed around body objectification and imagine future metaverse hybrids of Daphne’s myth in which the body is boundlessly transformed and where man and nature are indistinguishable. In keeping with the Maison’s collaborative spirit, this season, Iris van Herpen partners with sculptor Casey Curran, bequething a prospective statue of a future Daphne, bursting from the centre of the runway. Daphne’s sculpture transforms through herbose creatures blooming from her skeleton, at her chest appears a large crevice, revealing her mechanical heart pulsating inside, pertaining to the notion that the elusiveness of identity means that nothing can perish.
