Iris van Her­pen: Trans­form­ing Fash­ion

Designlines - - Hot Dates -

Jun 2-Oct 8 Su­per­star fash­ion de­signer Iris van Her­pen spe­cial­izes in op­ti­cal il­lu­sions. In her hands, a dress has the translu­cency and tex­ture of a jel­ly­fish, or else mim­ics the move­ment of flow­ing wa­ter. Chem­i­cal Crows, a sin­u­ous uni­form fit for a war­rior queen, is con­structed from chil­dren’s um­brel­las and cowhide. On dis­play along­side van Her­pen’s cou­ture is an in­stal­la­tion from ar­chi­tect Philip Beesley (see p. 122), whose sculp­tural ex­am­ples of re­spon­sive ar­chi­tec­ture move just as hyp­not­i­cally. PRICE TBA, ROYAL ON­TARIO MU­SEUM, 100 QUEEN’S PK ROM.ON.CA
