NUBU FALL '14
The fall collection of NUBU carries the cuts of the pre-fall pieces forward, building on circles and rectangles, bends and parallelism. The designers were inspired by the hypothetic perpetual-motion machine, the perpetum mobile, and the shapes of sculptures by István Haraszty, a significant sculptor of kinetic art; cyclic motives, and the proportion of spherical shapes. The designers strengthened the bends, vertical and parallel lines of the circle by stitching and plastic effects which appear in the weaving and structure of the textiles. The primary fabrics of the collection are fine wools, leather and fur. Inspired by gesture painting, large brushstrokes appear on the woolen fabrics and fine silks which tackle the slow-motion of kinetic sculptures, with luminosity brought about by the ceramic stones of Swarovski® Elements.
