MYKITA at Zero+Maria Cornejo S/S 2013 show
“Future primitive. It’s about looking towards the future, but with a nod to the past,” describes Maria Cornejo her 2013 S/S collection.
A new idea of urban luxury – made specifically with the traveling woman in mind – could be seen in sharp tailoring on breathable fabrics and knits on the catwalk at New York Fashion Week, where the new collection was launched. And of course, in the models wearing our frame VEGA, which is part of the MYKITA MYLON collection. The glasses with a futuristic design approach happen to be made out of what seems to be the material of the future, too: MYLON boasts individual adjustability, low weight and extreme durability, which make these spectacles both an outstanding sporting companion and a perfect fashion accessory.
Personal images have been digitally reworked into prints and what was quite primitive appeared futuristic. The images are note quite what they appear to be – an image of a 1920s Giacomo Balla steel sculpture for example is abstracted in vivid blue and black; Maria’s snapshot of crop circles from an airplane window was woven into luxe jacquards and bamboo knits; a collage print inspired by street art was splashed with hibiscus; and a woodblock print looked ultra modern because it was cut into an urban jumpsuit.
