From the architect. Neil Barrett, presenting his Autumn-Winter 2010 collection on Sunday, January 17th, chose to collaborate for the first time with AquiliAlberg, a Milan-based architectural and design studio. The designer chose two of AquiliAlberg’s sculptural installations as a background for his latest fashion show.

The Neil Barrett AW10 collection highlights the designer's specific style by cutting garments up and splicing them together in new ways, horizontally, vertically and from back to front to create HYBRIDS. Set against the sculptural backdrop designed by AquiliAlberg, the collection is also a nod to the myriad ways that architecture influences dress.

AquiliAlberg's installation – an innovative interpretation of space – is a variation on the design studio's work for “The Fragile City” exhibition at Triennale di Milano.

AquiliAlberg studio’s designs are open to different interpretations. A series of sliced surfaces generate a complex, yet controlled volume, obtained through three-dimensional digitalization.

The configuration gives the sculpture character, and wraparound lines create multi-faceted volume. Individual perception of the space, which has a kaleidoscope feel, differs according to physical position.

This search for spatial complexity has its roots in Optical Art.

Neil Barrett has always been fascinated and inspired by architecture, interiors and the crossover between these areas and fashion. In 2008 he opened his Concept Flagship Store in Tokyo, Japan, using architectural curves and layers.

Interesting form and shapes, however I am not sure if so strong design does not pull attention out from the main focus - models ;-) Interesting though, Lumiges.com
