“Travel through distorted time frames in graphic landscapes. When we move, we blend in or stand out. As small bodies in space, we hide and seek, merge or emerge.”
These suits are AnoukxVera’s first full body garments, executed in two variations: color block suits and gradient suits. Both play with silhouette and contrast. Whereas the color block suits were designed to partly camouflage the wearer in a multicolor landscape, the gradient suits redefine the wearer’s silhouette. The suits fit like a second skin, which enables the print’s deforming and alienating effect.
The suits were originally designed for the Food Experience during Dutch Design Week 2017 (Eindhoven, The Netherlands). This was a collaborative event with Creative Food Studio, for which AnoukxVera also functioned as creative directors and concept developers. The suits, worn by the restaurant workers, transformed in accordance with each course, representing its graphic language and color palette.
