Mode Metonym

2014

Art direction and photography. Designed by British designer Kate Langrish-Smith, Mode Metonym plays with the abstract notion of imprint and function. The collection of sculptural pieces invites performance—the objects appear to fit into or onto the body—and attempts to negotiate the need to physically wear these body adornments with the desire to engage and interact with the pieces. The concept of the editorial was a documented performance in response to the ever-shifting boundaries of both art and fashion.
