On September 8th, threeASFOUR unveiled their latest couture collection, Parallel UNIverse, during The Hole Gallery’s Armory After Party. In a celebration of artistic innovation, this collection melds the realms of fashion and technology, offering a glimpse into the future of haute couture.
threeASFOUR, a collective of polymath artists comprising Gabriel Asfour, Angela Donhauser, and Adi Gil, has long been known for pushing boundaries. With Parallel UNIverse, they prove their mettle by combining the digital and physical worlds and creating a collection that caters to traditionalists and tech enthusiasts alike.
This collection’s heart lies in a fusion of craftsmanship, innovation, and technology while being a testament to the transformative power that emerges when these seemingly disparate elements intertwine. By embracing the duality of physical and digital mediums, threeASFOUR challenges conventional notions of what a modern collection can embody.
The collection’s debut was a sensory journey unlike any other. As the experimental band UNI and the Urchins took the stage, dressed in threeASFOUR’s avant-garde creations, the audience was transported into a realm of consciousness, space travel, and hyper-dimensional geometry. The band’s improvisational set resonated with the brand’s overarching themes.
To further enhance the immersive experience, the event featured projections animated by Brian Close, 3D visuals by Placebo, and a corporeal expression channeled through pszʎgy. They challenged the very fabric of space-time, delivering a message of exploration and hope in the face of an uncertain future.
The garments showcased meticulous attention to detail, blending elements from the digital and physical realms, and resulting in a futuristic collection rooted in tradition. Among the collection’s highlights were sleek, metallic pieces that shimmered with an otherworldly iridescence and offered a glimpse into the cosmic inspirations that shaped this season’s work. Complementing the jackets were large-fitting trousers and outerwear, not to mention bodycon creations, which blurred the line between fashion and art.
Overall, Parallel UNIverse by threeASFOUR represents a bold step forward in fashion. It is a testament to the endless possibilities that arise when art and technology collide, and it challenges us to reconsider our perceptions of what modern couture can be.
threeASFOUR’s debut of the Parallel UNIverse collection during New York Fashion Week was a resounding success, and promises a future where creativity knows no bounds.
