MINOAR SS/16 - CRUST OF MOON
PRESENTING - MINOAR SS/16 - CRUST OF MOON //
We have been avid admirers of avant-garde label Minoar and their progressive take on menswear from the launch of the label and we are proud to present their Spring / Summer 2016 lookbook below.
‘Crust of Moon’ is a spirited collection which incorporates materials taken from the earth resembling its constant companion. This menswear line recreates the gloom of the non-living nature through precious elements such as hemp, paper, leather and silk.
Garments were created from one of the strongest fibers – hemp thread forming timeless artefacts. Passing into knitted leather as roots uniting the living and non-living matter where strength and elasticity of the skin are ultimate. Wooden garments are entangled from pure paper drawing its strength from the interwining of the many strands knitted together. Burned leather is formed in garments recreating the grandeur of the moon’s surface. The characteristic of thick silk and fine wool in this collection captures this inverted universal contrast.
"Nature exists there where it is unseen and untouched. In some ways it affects us more than what is surrounding us. It is the colourless object above us while we are in a shadow, in a symbiosis. Pale and equally as strong as the nature which links us. The crust of the moon has its peculiar formations and artefacts were created from its surface to be a crust for the body."
