They said: threeASFOUR’s Fall Winter 2012 collection is evoked by the compelling power of crop circles. For years, the team has been fascinated with the enigmatic presence, precision, and sophistication of these sacred patterns.
Mostly cyclical in nature, these concise, geometrically intricate designs have served as universal catalysts towards learning, understanding and spirituality as we strive to unravel the underlying messages behind genuine crop circles.
In homage to the medium, the collection consists of a natural, matte color pallette of pile fabrics reminiscent of grain crops—like wheat, maize, and rapeseed—contrasted by reflective, metallic materials in respect to the reflections of the sun and otherworldly elegance of crop circles.
We say: Is the crop circles inspiration the reason why the guy sitting next to us at the show was showing us photos of aliens he took with his iPhone? (no, really!) –Seriously, we cannot tell you how excited we are by this collection. Yes, it’s clever and conceptual (which might be why it draws the art crowd like Terence Koh, Chuck Close and Yoko Ono and was held at our fave NYC art gallery, The Hole) but it’s also intriguing, well constructed and in our opinion highly wearable. Favorite looks? The two above as well as the black and silver coat with the circular shape that wraps seamlessly into the hood.
