Iris Van Herpen has always stunned us with her collections where the difference between science and fashion is blurred. She's always on the lookout for something more, something substantial and completely out-of-the-box which will boggle your mind. 

For her latest showcase at the Paris Fashion Week, the super-designer collaborated with Anthony Howe, who used to create big, kinetic sculptures.

Titled 'Hypnosis', Herpen's collection revolves around Howe's Omniverse sculpture. With rotating circles of varying sizes spiraling out from a central arc, Omniverse “explores our relationship with nature and intertwines with infinite expansion and contraction, expressing a universal life cycle,” according to a statement on Iris’s website.

The designer used feathers, silk, aluminum, stainless steel, organza, ball bearings, and satin in labor-intensive processes to form the ethereal dresses worn by runway models who passed through and around Howe’s sculpture. Looking unreal as it sounds, the showcase was truly captivating.
