Theatre de la Mode: Olympian

On the 15th July 2016 Theatre de la Mode will premier a film by Camilla Robinson a vision of Olympian Gods and the capricious behavior of humans. Characters are draped in the Spring/Summer 2016 collection from Theatre de la Mode and as the Gods and Goddesses peer dreamily down upon us, the Olympian collection is brought to life in a visual spectacle.

The premier taking place at 203 Brompton Road, is the creative vision of Christopher Kelly. As Creative Director of Theatre de la Mode Christopher is known for innovative presentations of the Theatre de la Mode collections and S/S 11 is no exception.
The film will be projected onto the ceiling, reminiscent of the Sistine Chapel playing on the theme of Gods and Goddesses. Interrupting the grandeur of the Gods are black and white scenes of human destruction on Earth, images of the wrath of Gods in stormy skies and floods are mixed with archive footage of our own attempts at Olympian athletes, circa 1930’s.

Visions of Gods and humans are cut together in a surging finale.
The Olympian collection is the materialized Vision of Camilla Robinson’s film. Inspired by the Olympian deities, the collection is made using draping, silhouettes and quilted textures. Shapes are taken from the draping of the togas but retain a structured control. Prints are inspired by John Stezaker photography collages combined with Chinese porcelain repeats and colour blocks. Combined, this creates a refined collaboration of colour and shapes. See the whole collection.
