Acting as the starting point for the threeASFOUR spring/summer 2014 collection are the three syllables, Mer Ka Ba, which transcend throughout the three monotheist religions, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.
Designers Gabi Asfour, Angela Donhauser, and Adi Gil have synced their latest collection to represent the architecture of spiritual places by using strong visual lines to each pattern and mixing laser cutting with 3-D printing in various forms. Together, these three creatives have fused symbolic patterns to form new patterns respectively, as diverse as their own origins (Lebanon, Tajikistan, and Israel).
With this Spring collection, each piece is a visually stunning story. Using a minimalist color pallette of stark white, grey, and deep black, the hues offer a sense of calming to the busy shapes and textures. This line is surprisingly not chaotic at all. So structurally eye-pleasing and strong, it’s quite lovely actually. Voluminous tunics and sleeves were dressed with laser cut leggings and origami designs. A grey mini dress gave the appeal of an extraordinarily chic suit of armor, and a beautifully donned flowing black cape with precise cutouts floated down the runway.
Held at the Jewish Museum of New York, the location of this show was deemed necessary since The Trio will also be showing a multimedia exhibition, on view until early February 2014, which undoubtedly coincides with the inspiration of their impressive, moving, and thought-provoking Spring collection.
