Alexander Wang Cage Installation. New York, 2012
The installation was in collaboration with interior designer Rebecca King for the Alexander Wang Cage Installation, New York Fashion Week 2012 in which we were finalists. The installation was designed for the flagship Alexander Wang store in Soho, New York. The installation features double sided convex + concave mirrors to adorn the installation, in a bid to translate the Alexander Wang Fall 12’ collection –which takes on a ‘surrealist approach to fabric manipulation’. Not only do the reflections found within the cage directly mimic the industrial geometric motifs fused within the collection, they provide an illustrious appearance – symbolic of the fine leathers and slick glossy fabrications, tying in with Wang’s idea of ‘shrink–wrap, lamination, covering up, lacquering’. In addition, the mirrors directly translate the ‘expensive polish’ of the collection, playing with ideas of distortion and illusion, accentuating the custom developed fabrics that feature the FW 12’ collection. The beauty of the mirrors lies in the unique experience it offers the voyeur as they peruse the collection in store.
