Capara spring/summer 2012

Mar 19 2012, 10:00 am 0 Monica Bogliolo

Capara is the brand founded by Bosnian-born sisters Vera and Olivera Capara. The two are currently living in Belgium, where they both worked for major fashion names such as Dries Van Noten and Maison Martin Margiela, and then separate to continue their journey in fashion on their own, until 2009, when they come to work together with their brand. Their collections are introduced, from season to season, not only in the standard lookbook format, but also through short films: a visit to their site is a true multi-sensorial experience, through music, video, images and words. The spring/summer 2012 collection is full of ideas that lead to several important figures of the contemporary fields of fashion, art and design. The name is “Favourite Dreams”, and is inspired by the horizon, seen both as a metaphor for dreams and human limitations, and as a design element, a horizontal line that bisects the garments, who are in fact different at the bottom than in the upper part. Even the waves of some of the clothes are organic interpretations of the horizon. The prints are inspired by the work of artist Olafur Eliasson, while the laser cuts in the leather are based on the technique of couture gowns of Madame Grès. The jewels, a collaboration with the brand Noon Passama, are inspired by the artist Erwin Wurm, who reinterprets recognizable objects, deforming them starting from geometric forms that melt into organic shapes.
