Gaga arrived to the “FAME” launch party at Macy’s NYC yesterday in her perfume-princess carriage and hit the black carpet wearing…
… custom made strapless dress (the only picture I was able to find so far is the one Gaga published via Little Monsters) with detachable sculptured cape, from Iris van Herpen Fall 2012 Haute Couture “Hybrid Holism” collection, inspired by a project lead by architect Philip Beesley, called “Holozoic Ground“.
His almost living sculptures and environments suggest that a future city could operate as a living being in which “Holozoic Ground” offers a vision for a new generation of responsive architecture. Philip explores metabolic materials to connect human creations, like architecture, with natural systems. His innovative work uses concepts such as “living buildings” and “self-reparing architecture” that is self-sustainable and reacts to its changing environment.
Iris sees these possibilities of living technology as a future where design, art, architecture and even fashion will be radically changed: they will not constantly be newly made and after discarded, but they will become human creations that are partly alive and therefore able to change and improve constantly.
“Hybrid Holism” is highly complex and incredibly diverse in terms of shape, structure and materials, including mirrored copper sheeting, metallic coated stripes, UV-curable Polymer, silicone lace, Swarovski crystals, acrylic transparent sheets and Ecco leather.
Gaga accessorized the look with copper “Aliën Mask” Dutch milliner Irene Bussemaker created for Iris van Herpen “Hybrid Holism” collection and…
… a pair of killer custom made sky-high platform stiletto “FAME” booties by United Nude. Enjoy the studio captures of this beautiful bespoke work of art.
I know you probably know, but I’m not tired of repeating this. All the “FAME” promo appearances, same as “The Born This Way Ball” tour, are styled by Brandon Maxwell❣
