Le Printemps is live! Today, the Visions Couture windows devised by SHOWstudio, Nick Knight and Daphne Guinness are unveiled in Paris, showcasing three-dimensional photographic renderings of Daphne modelling creations by Paco Rabanne, Gareth Pugh, Maison Martin Margiela, Rick Owens and Junya Watanabe, alongside interactives devised by multimedia artist Daniel Brown, and Nick Knight's unique fashion films capturing Guinness in motion in each designer's inimitable creations.
Today, the first element of the project launched on SHOWstudio, showcasing the five fashion films created by Nick Knight from footage captured during the marathon two-day shoot and set against soundtracks recorded in Daphne Guinness' own voice. We also showcase a gallery of submissions from the public based around the windows' five radically different visual themes, and a live stream from vitrine #052 of Le Printemps, allowing a peek at the Parisian publican encountering with Brown's unique interactive elements in these window display.
Later this week will will launch three-dimensional renders, created from scans taken of Daphne Guinness' body that allowing you to rotate the sculptural forms seen in the windows of Le Printemps through 360-degrees, alongside interactive that allow you to experience the Le Printemps windows from the comfort of your own home. A true vision of couture for the twenty-first century.
