LIVING WITH LOVE THE SYSTEM
It was a lot of fun to create the costumes for the new videos of Love The System! We worked out the different personalities that the characters would have and the looks that would support these characters. Inspired by looks of both Blondie and Rick James the costumes came together. The costumes for both dolls and singers are mostly made of second hand fabrics, organic cotton and organic wool.
The release of the new single of SIMONE was accompanied by motion pictures and visual content. I was honored to design the dress for this release. In my studio she chose the fabrics that she loved and were a good match with her skintones. Inspired by time and the hourglass I made this mermaid design with low open back and high front split. Except the yarn and zipper, the dress is completely made from upcycled fabrics, even the inside lining. The fabric with the flowers had been a curtain before and for the extra shine there is a layer of purple tulle, found in a thriftshop, on top of it. Details are leftover fabrics from earlier projects.
