Proyecto: Colección The Collector

Alumno/a: Martin Maldonado

All the feelings and sensations coming from the perception that a child has of his environment as he develops his mind acquire an imaginary plot called: “The Collector”. The explorer spends most of his time hunting for insects and old artifacts, is curious about his surroundings and prefers to spend most of his time in nature because he has a great desire to understand the world in detail.

The idea of this collection is to explore how gullible mentality can be; from the second we are born everything surrounding us affects the way our personalities are defined. The visual inspiration of this collection came from old objects and toys redefined them through the shape, color, and material, taking a new meaning linked to the modern world.

The fabrics, materials and techniques of the collection are taken to another level but maintain a certain sensation of old time. “The Collector” uses soft, bright and contrasting colours, also structured round elements and exaggerated layers that reflects this childish feeling.

This project takes part of  Designers of the World 2014  fashion show and was the winner of the best collection of ModaFad 2014.
