Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
Walking into threeASFOUR’s Quantum Vibrations spring/summer 2017 fashion show last week, we expected to find a very natural, cohesive energy and a collection full of their iconic and dimensional designs. It wasn’t a shock when we got that, because after all, Gabriel Asfour, Adi Gil, and Angela Donhause work in such artistic unison that their designs and presentations show for it season after season. Before sitting, we were handed the run of show, which featured a quote by Nicola Tesla: “If you wish to understand the Universe, think of energy, frequency, and vibration.” For threeASFOUR, the universe’s power is always in sight, and they have a way of putting it into light thanks to fashion.
threeASFOUR presented their visions of hidden wavelengths, geometric systems, and varying frequencies. Quantum Vibrations debuted 24 entirely wearable looks for every shape, size, ethnicity, and age, and they were properly shown on varying male and female models. Throughout the collection, we watched models in Vibram shoes display a sense of comfort and ease as they walked to live sounds by Brian Close & Justin Tripp and Georgia Studio. Many of the looks were complemented by easily adjustable straps around the waistline, and zippers and panels for a wearability similar to outerwear. There was a natural progression of one-pieces, vests, and trousers on men and women—some sheer, some with cutouts, and some with layers or panels.
The brand also worked with Travis Fitch (their longtime 3-D printing partner company Fitchwork) to create 2-D patterns, which were derived from similar simulations. Of these pieces, we caught sight of a gorgeous new swimsuit in the same print as a backward-fastened trench coat, showing natural shades and tones of fish, snakes, and trees in different prints. And for the finale, we were awarded with a threeASFOUR piece that we were all hoping for: the Oscillation 3-D printed dress—a gorgeous aqua and piercing blue piece to add to our wish lists—created with Fitch and 3-D printing company Stratasys.
