CLON8 vs MONOCHROME FASHION EDITORIAL LONDON 2013

‘The forgotten stories of traditional costumes from the Asian cultures and the mixture of genders brought the Black Euphoria collection to life. Each texture and structure on the garments brings life and movement to the monochrome collection, creating a new take on the traditional attire. Through the exploration of the Kimono meaning ‘A thing to wear’, Black Euphoria focuses on creating looks that are ageless and timeless with no restrictions to the five W’s. Another strong characteristic of the collection is its use of the cube neckline that is a conceptual frame that liberates you to think beyond the box. Black Euphoria is a celebration of androgyny, mixing structural tailoring and geometric lines, against elegantly draped fabrics. CLON8’s Black Euphoria is a collection of creative thinking that acknowledges and discards the accepted pattern to create new ideas.’ Angelika Chilikova
