The Fashion of Architecture

Posted in studio 1a_2010 by chaosincolour on 16 January 2010

“Fashion is architecture: It is a matter of proportions.” – Coco Chanel

I’ve always believed there was a strong relationship between Architecture and Fashion. Both reflect functional, social and aesthetic considerations, but also provide the oppourtunity for artistic, technical and conceptual experimentation. One fashion house that I believe embodies the correlation between Architecture and Fashion is Dutch based designers Viktor & Rolf. Their work is not only aesthetically beautiful, but also technically brilliant. Their Spring 2010 Ready-to-wear collection illustrates their ability to fuse both Architecture and Fashion through the technical and the artistic.

    Don’t forget shoes to go with that. Check out: http://www.unitednude.com/index.php

    Started by the nephew of architect Rem Koolhaas (also named Rem Koolhaas which seems to have led to some articles reporting it as designed by the architect – but they’re interesting either way)

    Some of my favourites:

    I really love the block pumps, they are amazing shoes – Carrie Bradshaw amazing. The designer is quite interesting and very creative.
