Prototypes defies conventions, channeling creativity through limitations. Their muse? Discarded garments and forgotten fabrics. From these remnants of fashion's past, they conjure new life and redefine the possibilities of sustainable style. A debut runway show in the heart of Paris showcased their audacious spirit, proving that even humble bedsheets can take center stage. SERIES 03, their ready-to-wear collection, confidently explores fresh silhouettes and themes: military jackets reborn as gender-fluid twin sets, prom dresses transformed into contemporary essentials, and more.
Prototypes' commitment to pushing boundaries is evident in their latest collection.
Models obscure their faces with hair or hoodies, their body language communicating warmth, self-assurance, or vulnerability. The collection, according to show notes, "tells a story of preservation in technique and spirit." Designers Callum Pidgeon and Laura Beham credit stylist Betsy Johnson for the "conceptual direction," highlighting the role of unconventional pocket placements in shaping silhouettes and body language. The collection underscores the resilience of fabrics, with an emphasis on upcycling, including the repurposing of Yeezy deadstock for five distinct looks.
Prototypes is more than a brand; it's a gathering of avant-garde fashion enthusiasts rewriting the industry's narrative one stitch at a time.
