The Other Wind-Cape

October 13th, 2012 § 0 comments

Wear-on installation playing with movement (motion and wind) and impact on the street image. The Other Wind Cape is a garment that features a 3 dimensional body shape on its back, that inflates, moves and dances in the wind. The silhouette becomes a double body, two bodies back to back, as imaginary companions, or shadows maybe. Light weight waterproof nylon, limited edition.

The Other Wind Cape has integrated the Deste Fashion Collection in 2012, as part of a selection of 7 art and fashion projects made in 2011. The capsule 2012 was curated by Athina Rachel Tsangari for the Deste foundation.
