Woman study in space. The so-called Haute Couture fall / winter 2018 collection by Iris Van Herpen could be named that, thanks to a metal structure that slams the head of the models, is like metaphorically suspending its scenographic clothes in the void to project them beyond the third dimension they represent so beautifully thanks to unprecedented shapes, geometries and volumes sculpted with a mastery that almost does not seem human. And intentionally. Because the effect is alienating. The goal is to outline the silhouette of the woman of the future, a strong and iconic woman who, thanks to the clothes she wears, so important and cumbersome, is imposed not only visually but above all concretely with a highly scenic presence that can not go unnoticed.
A woman who masters the space she occupies and defines it thanks to her expressive power.
