From Dior to Givenchy, designers are blurring the lines between fashion and sculptural artworks for their Autumn-Winter 2019-2020 Haute Couture collections.

Today Iris van Herpen presented her latest Couture collection for Autumn-Winter 2019/20, titled ʻHypnosisʼ, at Élysée Montmartre in Paris. Inspiration was found in the manifolds within our ecologies through the work of American artist Anthony Howe. The meditative movement of the spherical ‘Omniverse’ sculpture served as a portal for the collection and the models, encircling a state of hypnosis through the ‘Infinity’ dress. ∞ Show credits Special thanks to collaborating artist: @anthony.howe.art Collaborating artist: @philip.beesley Video by @blitzkickers Styling: @patti_wilson Music direction: @sssalvadorrr Model: @rebekkame Casting: Maida Gregory Boina, @maximevalentini & @caromauger Make up: @silbruinsma1 & the @maccosmeticsfrance PRO Team Hair: @martincullen65 for @streetersldn Shoes by @unitednude Manicure: @jessicascholten_ Press: @karlaotto ∞ #irisvanherpen #hypnosiscouture #parisfashionweek
