London – Anya Hindmarch looked to the cosmos for inspiration for her spring/summer 2014 accessories collection.
Hindmarch dazzled visitors at her London Fashion Week show, which had a planetary theme, with large rotating orbs and handbags floating from the ceiling as if they were stars. Models began the show by walking down the catwalk as expected, but half way through the show, as bags began to glide down, the models flew up as if they were rising to the celestial heavens.
Hindmarch was inspired by weightlessness, using a special technique to make the leather that featured throughout the collection lightweight. The theme – What Planet Are You On? – was supported by a microsite that offered visitors their own unique astral chart.
Turning to astrology for inspiration is fitting at a time when science and art are coming together, as we explore in our Re-enlightenment Rising macrotrend.
