Iris van Herpen presents Hybrid Holism, her most recent Haute Couture collection for A/W 2012-13.
This season, Iris’ inspiration is yet another scientific experiment; this time her inspiration is drawn from a project lead by architect Philip Beesley called Hylozoic Ground. His almost living sculptures and environments suggest that a future city could operate as a living being in which Hylozoic Ground offers a vision for a new generation of responsive architecture. Beesley collaborates with people from many different disciplines including Rachel Armstrong, an experimental chemist who works with ‘living technology’ such as Synthetic Biology—the engineering for living systems.
