LAURA LAURENS + CRUSH OF LIGHT : WE ARE THE MONSTERS

 

In an attempt to capture the spirit of her new collection [MONSTER HAIR AW17], we stayed late at her old and stylish studio in Chapinero like two elementary school friends on a playdate, hiding with a flashlight under the sheets. We explored the shadows and played with them.

“darkness comes from light”

Laura Laurens (Bogotá, Colombia) is inspired by her background in Fine Arts. Her work is defined by a distinctly raw approach to design. Laura debuted her label in Paris with a special capsule collection made entirely from the stock of Colombia military fabrics.

Each collection intends to be a statement about an issue of our dual world, where contradictions and conflicting concepts fill the scenery, a stage where masculine and feminine elements meet. The brand works with limited editions, oversized silhouettes, sculptural and wrapped-around shapes, always thinking about the intervention of the textiles with a look reminiscent of a painting’s surface.
