The geometry seen in Irina Shaposhnikova fashion collection reminds me of a structure; a structure that has been formed around the female form.
This brings me back to architecture. I have such an appeal for interesting architectural forms which has led me to look at Shaposhnikova garments from an architectural point of view.
Plasma Studio, an architectural firm based in London, was commissioned to fit out level four of the new Hotel Puerta America (in Madrid). This design savvy hotel has commissioned different architects and interior designers to fit out each level of the hotel. Some of the chosen architects include Zaha Hadid and Foster and Partners. Plasma’s level, funnily enough, resembles the crystal like forms seen throughout Irina Shaposhnikova collection.... Fashion and architecture are made for each other!!!
