Interview - Orphan Bird
Orphan Bird introduced a melodious minimalism into a Spring Summer 2014 collection where the essence of the cutting creates dimension and virtuosity. Valuable focus given to the details, "Empty Blocks" reinterprets a traditional way of tailoring through a contrast of lines accentuated by the color palette for an avant-garde and pure silhouette.
"How can you express the soul of your garments ?"
"We create timeless elegance with a retrofuturistic twist, by infusing simplicity with contemporary ideas.
The essential element is to find a balance between functional and conceptual, with a moderate tone of gender blurring. Our designs keep the body mysterious by combining bold patterns with unfitted cuts; showing less is essentially more seductive"
"What makes you believe in Fashion ?"
"We believe in art rather than fashion.
Fashion is trends, it is everchanging and leave no time for introspections. Art is a personal form of expression and has no boundaries. It is an escape from the mainstream and the social compliance. It brings courage to be genuine"
