– July 3rd, 2019 / Les Beaux-Arts de Paris, rue Bonaparte – Paris 6, France
Nothing is permanent, nothing really dies, everything is changing…
Is it possible to transpose a subject as sensitive as life and death into an Haute Couture collection? It is undeniably the prodigy that the famous designer Guo Pei has achieved, presenting her new collection entitled Alternate Universe…
A sandy runway was decorated with an arch of entwined black branches populated by black crows suggesting a macabre portal into her imagination. “When I was a child, I often thought about death,” the couturier said through a translator. “Where do we go? I think a lot of people think about this.”
For this collection, pineapple hemp fabric, the treasured material of the Philippines, is widely used. In existence for over 400 years, pineapple hemp extracted from the leaf fiber of pineapple plants, and put through seven manual processes suc as spinning, rinsing, drying and knotting to produce the fabric.
Guo Pei explores her creativity using various sewing techniques on pineapple hemp fabric to juxtapose the world she imagines.
Nothing really dies, everything is transformed…
