Ravn started with the festival logo as a source of inspiration, adapting it to the boxy, geometric style in which he usually works. ‘I just wanted to make something very modern that did not resemble a uniform at all,’ he tells LS:N Global.
The result is a futuristic, unisex look. The body of the tunic is made of white Spacer neoprene, a breathable material frequently used in underwear and haute couture, which Ravn calls ‘a much more luxurious approach to neoprene’. A galaxy swirl of colours is printed over the fabric in a mediaeval-inspired pattern of interlocking triangles.
A similar architectural, graphic patchwork look emerged earlier this autumn. See our Fashion Week spring/summer 2013 overview for more.
