LA designer C2H4
Check out C2H4’s SS18 campaign featuring 3-D animations and a preview to their VANS Collaboration which is set to release this summer. All of the images are taken from a short film directed by designer Yixi Chen. Yixi also gave a quote on her ideas behind the collection. If you aren’t familiar, C2H4 is better known by their popular Kappa Collaboration which launched last July. You can view that here: https://hypebeast.com/20
The garments created for the C2H4 Spring Summer 2018 collection resemble the laboratory work-wear for a chemist in the year 2082. The designer’s 2082 laboratory visualization is expressed through these costumes. The pieces are saturated-monochromatic color schemes that boast accents of cool blue, dynamic red and urban yellow. C2H4 presents garments, which defy gravity.
Assembling a new batch of silhouettes, the collection offers a laboratory coat, utility vest and a multifunctional anorak. Essentials for synthesizing the C2H4 wardrobe are the bottoms, which consist of technical sweatpants, pocket-filled cargo pants, and side-strap track pants.
Quote from the designer, “The concept of C2H4 18 S/S collection “Zero Gravity” is based on our virtual space company “C2H4 Spacetech”, which provides trips for habitants on Earth to travel to Mars. The campaign shows the life of an on board staff member during his trip in the year 2082. Pockets and utility features allow person wear the clothes to keep things under zero gravity circumstances. The tag for SS18 collection is even a boarding pass for travelers from ERH-MAR.
