Ukrainian designer and stylist Irina Dzhus recently announced her new Spring/Summer 2014 collection called Archetype inspired by iconographic canons of Orthodox Christianity.
More after the break:
Archetype is a primordial symbol, an initial dogma of consciousness. A creative mind that aspires to the original truth finds the fundamental module for its subjective perfection’s structure.
The visual concept of the collection mainly derives from the orthodox Christian iconographic canons. The magnetic conventionalism of characters and graphics is inherently the universal code of spirituality.
Elementary forms turn into rhythmical and constructional designs. Eclectic combinations of textiles, raw hems and exposed seam allowance contouring the silhouettes reflect the dialectical matter of the pieces – as a key to the synergy of a person wearing them and the innermost essence of the universe.
