Dorhout Mees - ladiesngents-Liserole Chevalier





(adj.) mysterious and entrancing;
beyond ordinary understanding

Orhpic S/S 17 by Dorhout Mees is inspired by phenomenon, striking of lightning.
In nature, but also the fascination of what happens when lightning strikes a person, who survives..
The movement of light, heat and electricity in such a concentrated vorm through matter..
What happens..
 The heat can change a strong trunk of a tree into darkened cole, electricity can change metals into beautiful oillike oxidated surfaces, and lightning
can create these scars on the body that look like frozen electricity into the skin.
Painfully beautiful tableaus.. and so the main inspiration for this new Dorhout Mees collection.
Being about skin tones of different kinds, but with 3D structures that move over the skin heightened like scars.
Corcets accentuating the body, combined with leather sneakers, both with chaotic almost woven laces crossing
on top and over each other mimicking these same structures on the body
And a sliver of silver lying on the body as a shiny metal second skin, showing each joint, where electricity was put through the material
to make it react in these rainbow like patches.
Transparanty, showing the body and skin, combined with asymmetrical structures define the silhouettes.

The combination of something that is so beautiful to behold and at the same time so dangerous was so interesting to me, the fragility of a material or our own body in that way was for me such an interesting thought.. that it created my whole collection..

Cecile MORAGE_ESMOD ROUBAIX 2016

The EgoTripples Collection by Cecile MORAGE is inspired with Sigmund FREUDS concepts
of EROS and THANATOS which are the drives of life and death and govern human interaction. This concept is based on the principle of attraction-aversion oscilating between the yearn for admiration and the rejection by other people. It can be personified as Matriochka because of its overlapping personalities
as well as its flower pattern and round shapes.
This antagonism can be seen in these patterns at the very first glance: the mixture of anatomical plates is a reference to Thanatos, whereas flowers symbolise femminity, roundness and gentleness. As a whole it brings out a form of spleen poetry close to the Slavic culture.
This collection plays with two categories of femminity: the seductive one and childlike.
These two cross each other and get mixed up in both attraction and rejection.
The aspect of attractiveness can be found in the body parts associated to seduction: eyes, hair, mouth, breasts and hands. It can also be seen in the feminine and cheerful range of colours. The round and enveloping shapes of the clothes and the soft textiles such as cotton satin make it full of of attractiveness and the childlike feminity. However, this yearn for admiration results in frustration and exaggerations aimed at other peoples attention
which lead to their aversion. The latter is expressed by body distortion and transformation:
oversized mouth and dropped breasts...
The image of childhood becomes threatening because of the impressive dolls heads and
their eyes placed in buttons.
This surreal and plastic collection is a catharic summary of the students universe.

At what age did you realise that you have a love for fashion? And how did this initially express itself?
The brand is found by two brothers me and Yury. Our parents were involved in the fashion industry since the beginning of 1990s, so we were always closely connected to the industry and initially had no other choice.

Would you tell us what  the main characteristics of your collection for Fall/Winter 2017-18 are?
The main inspiration for the collection was the land-art and especially the works of Nils Udo and Andy Goldsworthy, the two independent artists. Thats why there are so many colours of the late autumn nature with some bright and unexpected accents: such as electric blue and neon orange.

Is there anything about the fashion industry that you are not fond of?
There are many things that Im not fond of. Especially the lumpen hype with which Russian fashion industry is associated nowadays. All those Cyrillic letters and post-soviet inspirations are too much in the scope of fashion.

How did your collaboration come about? Apart from a shared aesthetic,
what do the two of you have in common that made you decide to work together?

It was not a sudden decision to be made, to work together as a team.
Because we knew that it was going to be damn hard. And, It was. But we always liked some challenges in our path. It gives us a good motivation to move forward in spite of each other, if you know what I mean. I compare the duo work to a kitchen work with two chefs in one place.
The ingredients are already prepared on the table, but none of us knows what is going to be made. It is exciting to see what we will
be served on the table later on. Yes, we like the unexpected.

What is it about London that sparks your creativity? What does the city mean for each of you?
London is where we used to study, at the Royal college of Art and the London College of Art,
and we still occasionally work in London, in order to keep the inspiration happening around us. It is a place where we still feel like we are students inside. You know, you can create absolutely anything you want as a fashion student. It also feels like what we are doing is being spiritually supported. Strange.

Do you like to experiment with your personal style?
We are actually not the model type of person. We like experimenting with patterns on paper and garment, not how we look.
