Espèces FW15 Collection : A question of life and death, of nature and technology.

20.07.2015 - Dries Tack

For Fall/Winter 2015, the duo behind Espèces continues to bring in their interesting synthesis generated by their complementary backgrounds: Sébastien Lacomplez holding a degree in plastic arts with a specialisation in digital art and Marie Artamonoff with a degree in jewellery. For their new collection defined by innovation and experimentation, the designers assert a certain level of independence, transposing and reflecting their own expertises with the choice of a certain aesthetic.

Lacomplez and Artamonoff strongly believe in the power of bones, "Bones force us to go beyond ourselves as they have become objects of strangeness that defy notions of time and mortality." The new collection for FW 2015 also includes bones, with a range of new models and materials incorporated. The ergonomic form of bones transforming into necklaces reach a state of immortality in their designs.

The inspiration and interaction also lead to the launch of a unisex ready-to-wear collection for FW 2015. The duo recently developed a special IT programme in partnership with a Belgian industrial knitting firm. The system generates drawings to be uniquely printed on clothings. As each pixel is equivalent to a point of the mesh, each pullover, each scarf or each pair of leggings becomes unique with its own variation of the drawing.

The patterns of clothings seem to have fueled the creation of a special line of jewels made of silver and gold, as well. Through subtraction and extrusion from the textile line, jewels in the collection resemble mathematical objects in evolution. Following the simple rules of evolution, the idea behind the pieces is the imitation of the self-reproduction capabilities of living beings.
