The Artisan presents Collection IV: additional notes

The-Artisan-IV-01


Since I've already written about The Artisan's Collection IV on my Benetton blog, I've decided to put up additional notes. Starting with: there is something very Japanese about the use of sea creatures, especially when they seem to be part of a metamorphosis.

Though it would have been more interesting if the clothes bore more elements from the concept. How about developing the circles of tentacles into an animal print?




The-Artisan-IV-03


Crabs are all about digits. What makes spiders creepy. I wonder how ordinary shirts, and even denim jeans, can be segmented in a similarly threatening way.


The-Artisan-IV-04


Imagine the tentacle suckers as crazy polka dots instead of this zebra print.


The-Artisan-IV-05


Or rows and rows of overlapping teeth instead of stripes!


The-Artisan-IV-06


The snappy trio behind The Artisan: Christian San Jose, EJ Reyes, and Enrico Suarez.


The-Artisan-IV-07


Ok, I give up when it comes to eels. I just eat them.


The-Artisan-IV-08


This is perfect; would not touch it.


The-Artisan-IV-09


Which creature do you relate to the most?
