The collection FW 18/19 is inspired by the New Yorker artist, Olivia Erlanger, specifically in her work Body Electric in which she combines sculptural elements with digital elements.
Drawing inspiration from current and future technologies, Body Electric speculates on the changing relationship between humans and their environment, as an increasingly unpredictable natural world mediates and distorts our bodily experience.
The headgear of this collection deepens this antithesis: classic fabrics combined with reflective, fresh wool with paint details.
The knitwear, on the other hand, is oriented on Frank Jànos, a Hungarian artist known for his works in which he uses and weaves different types of yarns. Characterized by a strong three-dimensionality, building a language of their own where the material is no longer a mere support or appears subordinate to the representative function that had until then, it forms three-dimensional elements that develop with the surrounding space.
The turbans, hats and bands represent (symbolize) these characteristics through the interweaving of yarns in wool, mohair wool, lurex becoming also 'three-dimensional'.
Considering the magnitude of this artist but also his active role in the feminist movement, Flapper has decided to honor this pioneering and visionary artist for its collection FW 18/19.
Novelties of the collection are accessories, such as gloves, collars and balaclavas that bring us back to medieval imaginaries and also the use of fur in headbands and hats.
Rabbit felt hats are made with heat-sealed reflective strips or soft rollable wool felt.
For the soirée part of the collection: Glitter turbans, and headbands with sculptural elements in varnish.
Continuative of the collection the triangle hat developed in different materials that can be wrap in various ways. And furthermore, the capsule developed with a selection of Loro Piana fabrics.
