I’m a secret nerd at heart. I plan nightime trips out to the country just to see the Milky Way, I love a good David Attenborough doco and am forever toying with the idea of setting up a blog/series that juxtaposes fashion with nature. So it’s lovely to find others who share my appreciation for science.
Tettmann.Doust‘s ‘Infinitum’ collection for Autumn/Winter 2013 imbues their trademark soft silhouettes and bodysuits with beading and digital prints based on fractal art. Fractals may occur in nature (consider the delicate veins of a leaf, cracks in a parched desert or snowflakes) but can also be produced mathematically. It’s a form of measured chaos. Tettmann.Doust’s pieces this season particularly remind me of the Molecular Expressions project which put all kinds of everyday things – vitamins, microchips, even cocktails – under a microscope and ended up blurring the line between science and art. A result, I guess, which is not unlike something that this label continually aspires to!
You can see Tettmann.Doust‘s upcoming collection in all its intricate glory on the Independent Runway at LMFF in March.
