In a daring move that aligns with the ethical fashion movement, Area's latest Fall 2023 Couture collection went down a path much-tread by Matthieu Blazy and delivered a mind-bending illusion. At first glance, the items in the collection appear to be made from fur, but upon closer inspection, they're revealed to be made of fabric with a "fur-like" print. The result? Some of the most environmentally friendly "fur" outfits made from denim, puffer jackets, and even dresses.
The brand's creative director, Piotrek Panszczyk, seems to be utterly fascinated by primitive animal themes this season. Evening dresses feature knots that seem to hold fossilized bones, while jackets, bodysuits, and suits are adorned with stone-studded scratch marks resembling claw marks.
Panszczyk's vision is nothing short of revolutionary, bringing together sustainability, fashion, and art in a unique blend. The collection serves not only as a platform for extraordinary design but also as a statement on ethical fashion choices.
If you are in search of couture with a conscience, Area's Fall 2023 collection is a must-see. It deftly combines innovative design with environmental responsibility, providing the best of both worlds in high-end fashion.
