At New York Fashion Week on September 13th, experimental design team, threeASFOUR, sent a trippy, print heavy, collection down the runway. Inspired by the emptiness of atoms and the “frequency of sound and light vibrating off of them that creates the appearance of a solid,” the collection was driven by kaleidoscopic patterns, created in collaboration with Travis Fitch, that almost appeared to pulsate when viewed. Amorphous silhouettes and drapey proportions gave off bohemian vibes with a sci-fi edge. While a plethora of prints sometimes limits a piece of clothing’s wearability, Gabi Asfour, Angela Donhauser, and Adi Gil managed to create a visually stimulating but still versatile collection. Any of the twenty-four looks would be right at home at an upscale LES art happening or on the Burning Man playa.
