Burnt 2012 | Robert Wun 


Burnt 2012 by Robert Wun: “Curiosity towards the bonds between Nature and Man has always been a main inspiration to me. Discovering the symmetrical flaws in nature led me to a deeper attraction of microphotographs of butterflies and moths. Insects we perceive to be symmetrical and consequently, beautiful. Yet it was the flaws in nature that triggered my interest. Where nature design many things in symmetrical proportions but yet both left and right sides are slightly different.

To achieve this particular idea I had to use techniques whereby you cannot control the outcome, like burning and melting. Delve into the idea that nothing is perfect. All those ruffles are created by waddings with burnt out gradient patterns, highly crafted in-between with glass organza. Also led to a very artificial fabric ranges, Neoprene, Organza, Lycra, Foam and waddings. Using artificial based resources to regenerate an idea of nature with organic working methods. Symbolizing the relations between man and nature.

While the ombre effects created by digital printings and hand dip-dyed works like a harmony between two extremes. Man and Nature, Black and White. Something I always fascinated and inspired from. Accessories’ detail development looked towards the structure of insects under a microscope, examining the scales and limbs intricately and transporting these spiky visuals into platform heels with a horned toe. The idea of nature versus artificial, generated as a vision of a striking, independent women’s wear collection, bizarre in a sophisticated, yet appealing way.”
