Simulation, illusion and fake reality inspired the SS15 collection of THEFOUR, the artificial realms of Dubai, Disneyland or Las Vegas that offer the evanescent experience of synthetic euphoria. The designers are remixing 50s and 90s silhouettes, pairing contrasting materials and using colors of a mirage to recreate the sensation of a daydream like lightness. Warm hues of the sunset and the desert like pale rose, golden orange sand and beige set the tone of the collection. They are offset with vibrating colors that evoke the lights of casinos. This gentle eclecticism is appeased with shapes of classic but subdued femininity and androgen minimalism. Technical materials are married with the softest natural fabrics, like silk and linen, playing a trick on our senses. Small fragments of the reality are pulled together in collages of prints, embroideries and applications that embellish the garments, allying the authenticity of handicraft with the fakeness of imitation.
