Iris Van Herpen has always stunned us with her collections where the difference between science and fashion is blurred. For her latest showcase at the Paris Fashion Week, the super-designer collaborated with Anthony Howe, who used to create big, kinetic sculptures.

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.
