“A PORTRAIT OF NOOMI RAPACE" BY AITOR THROUP

0 comments

I never thought I'd mad about Aitor Throup's works and I was so excited to come across his works because his design process is centred around innovative methods of design and construction, in particular a construction process which use his own sculptures of the human body as a system for blocking garments. Talented Argentinian designer Aitor Throup graduated from Royal College of Art and his MA collection, "When Football Hooligans Become Hindu Gods", which is my favorite had a strong narrative thread running through it and featured a diverse selection of influences from generic military garments to Hindu symbolism, also coming together through unique transformational product feature. From his MA collection has proved that his innovative cutting and creativity in the realm of fashion. From his work with C.P. Company to the his capsule collections like the Shiva skull bag, Skanda jacket and Saxophone shirt, to the design of the England National Team Kit with Umbro, just recently he presented a film was commissioned by Nowness.com especially to mark their relaunch on the 29th of September 2014. The film is not only about an actual three dimensional portrait of Noomi Rapace being intricately sculpted, also acts a portrait of her in itself. From his previous works to the recent projects, I can strongly feel his long fascination with the human anatomy and the evolution of his study of construction and fabrication have culminated in the fashion industry and ensure a symbiotic relationship wearer and garments. It's taken quite a while, but I'd say it was worth the wait.
