MARKO MITANOVSKI // LFW SS16

Another dark, fantastic collection has just been launched by Marko Mitanovski!

Marko collaborated with four sculptors: Sonja Gajic, Ivan Stevanovic, Miki Lakobrija and Milan Stosic, who contributed to the illustrations of abstract shapes and figuration of emotions throughout the collection. The jewellery that paired with it was created by the jeweller of the brand, De Mode.

As the models slowly, creep down the catwalk to Björk’s “Army of Me” in latex and leather, adorned with jewels enveloping their faces you notice something on the clothing. Some of the dresses had faces and hands sculpted into the outfits as if someone was trying to escape them. Inspirations for Marko’s creations this season were expressionist artist Munch’s “The Scream”, and Hitchcock’s ‘”The Birds'” and “Psycho”, which translated impeccably throughout the collection.

I managed to get a quick word in with Marko and asked him this:

Was there much literature inspiration for this collection seeing as you come from a literature background? 

 “I was not inspired by literature with this collection, I was inspired more by the painting (as mentioned above), like with the faces in the dresses because of its symbolism of pain and anger. Also, with textures and forms in nature I collaborate with, and I would like to mention their names; Sonja Gajic, Ivan Stevanovic, Miki Lakobrija and Milan Stosic.”

 

From your last collection with more fabrics, what made you move onto more latex this season?

“We wanted to explore new things, latex allows you to play with shapes and sculpture differently.”
