Bodybuildings #streetwear #soundsuits for the future by Ines De Peuter [#geekgirl]

BODYBUILDINGS from Ines De Peuter on Vimeo.

Ines De Peuter investigates the relationship between the self and its context by creating garments that adapt to the concrete jungle.

Moving together with the fast pace of the city and being constantly on the go, personal space becomes scarce. ‘Bodybuildings’ is a movie forecast that inspires streetwear to soften the hardness of the city.

The garments filter the stimuli of the city by using big volumes that increase the border between the body and its environment. Hoods wrap themselves around the head to isolate the noise, while a surface of grids is adopting the language of the cityscape, forming a guard to block the cities aggression.

#Video of #Drones carrying #handbags on the #catwalk at #Fashion Show [#geekgirl]

The Dolce and Gabbana fashion show in Milan delighted attendees by using drones to fly handbags down the catwalk.

Guests were reportedly kept waiting 45 minutes – after organisers had to ensure everyone turned off their Wi-Fi – while being kept in the dark about the upcoming demonstration.

The drones’ appearance was accompanied by a Kendrick Lamar song – ‘All The Stars’ – while men and women wearing white lab coats walked alongside the aircraft with remote controls.
