Iris van Herpen - Shift Souls

Iris van Herpen presented her spring 2019 couture collection at the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Paris.
"Shift Souls" is inspired by DNA engineering and early astronomy, Harmonia Macrocosmica (a 17th-century star atlas.
Made in collaboration with New York-based artist Kim Keever, the ensembles contained layers of translucent organza prints on them with kinetic patterns and scientific, artistic and futuristic references.

"I looked at the evolution of the human shape, its idealization through time and the hybridization of the female forms within mythology. The way imagination and the fluidity within identity change in Japanese mythology gave me the inspiration to explore the deeper meaning of identity and how immaterial and mutalble it can become within the current coalescence of our digital bodies”
