Stella McCartney + Sorayama limited-edition capsule – unisex – was conceived by the British-Japanese duo after a previous collaboration.
The Maison enters into the creativity of Hajime Sorayama by combining design, iconic images of the Japanese artist and a propensity for the future. The values of the garments are always sustainable, sustainable, cruelty-free and vegan.
Nella collezione appaiono come sinergia elementi creati dall’artista Hajime Sorayama (1947) quali Sexy Robots, silver strawberries e the motto Platinum Dream.
Unisex frees the wearability of ready-to-wear in roomy Savile Row tailoring in responsibly sourced wool, satin daytime pajama sets and knitwear rendered in glimmering silver yarns, varsity jackets made using NONA Source repurposed deadstock fabrics, Platinum Dream organic cotton denim sets. Moreover, accessories as Elyse platform derbies, iconic Falabella and Frayme bags and silver strawberry hard clutches.
As biography, since 1978, Hajime has been recognised globally for his iconic Sexy Robot series – exploring the limitations of desire, the possibilities of technology and the ideals of femininity; his Platinum Dream. Brought to life through his superreal drawings, paintings and sculptures, his vision delves into intimate relationships with objects and has significantly influenced robotic imagery in the art world. Sorayama’s award-winning works are exhibited in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York City and Smithsonian Institute in Washington and many others.
The model in charge for the campaign is the British actress Iris Tallulah Elizabeth Law in shots portray her in an almost androgynous look.
As announced, The Stella McCartney + Sorayama limited-edition capsule will arrives in-store in two drops: first, this year, December 2023 and second, next year, January 2024.
