Là Fuori explores the parallels between the two creative field.
For Là Fuori architecture serves as an evergreen source of inspiration. The idea is to teach our demographic — the younger generation who’s immersed in fashion — about architecture through our travels.
The brand believes that fashion and architecture, at their core, are focused on assembly. The architectural system and technique of “fastening” connects forms or materials in a variety of ways, where sequence is of utmost importance.
Fashion’s construction of clothing through pattern making and sewing follows a similar type of protocol.
Both fields utilize, as a base language, innovation, experimentation and fluency with color and texture. In this way, architecture follows fashion.
This way fashion’s advances in fabric manipulation — like digital laser cutting or the use of a 3-D printer — can translate directly into architectural techniques used to define a building’s structural surfaces.
“Behaviors of fabrics can be extracted and implemented to work on architectural membranes.”
On a more aesthetic level, fashion designers have also crossed over to interior design.
Fashion no longer associated with an eponymous clothing line, recently designers are collaborating with high-end furniture companies.
Fashion gets inspiration from all sources. However, the synergy between fashion designers and architects is unparalleled. Architecture produces inhabitable art while fashion gives us wearable art.
Designers who dip their toe into the world of architectural fashion, use building blocks to form the garment. In the same manner that architects use concrete, glass, bricks etc to construct the building, designers make high fashion dresses.
Là Fuori’s dressmaking is the architecture of movement” while incorporating architectural elements into his design.
Our brand it investigates the commonalities between architecture and fashion – to create shelter. While architecture creates shelter for one or more human bodies, fashion shelters one (most of the time). Both, however, focus on placing aesthetic as a common factor in the design of their product. This segregates them from the rest of the sciences and brings them into the realm of fine arts.
The inspiration from art can easily be witnessed in the designs that stand out and draw our attention to its artistic roots. Nature plays a vital role in this scenario. When the resulting garment/building comes out of an exploration of natural forms, the result is almost always original. With digital design and construction tools, the morphology for architecture and fashion has a vast and expansive area to be explored.
The hallmarks of high fashion which is inspired by architecture are scooping angles, detailing of shapes, exaggerated proportions, and attention to construction.
Là Fuori has created designs that explore the relationship between architecture and high fashion. It features various movements and styles – minimalism, postmodernism, and deconstructivism. The dresses also play on common characteristics like twists, folks, pleats, prints, and curves.
With curves, angles, patterns, and colors inspired by buildings, Là Fuori, through through its travels has brought forth some interesting and impressive arts and crafts to life.
