Fashion regarded as body packaging results in wrap-around garments and references to pregnancy, fetal positioning within the female body, the fragile fetus. An intriguing reference to structure as the fetus is the unborn offspring. Tanne Vinter’s collection brings to mind the fetal sac with its slightly inflated clothing forms and incisions. Soft textures and fluid geometries dress up the body forming a protective fetus that conceils the body’s intimacy, soft and vulnerable, yet so vital.
“My expression originates and transforms into a melancholic avant-garde universe.
I evolve clothes based on a conceptual and sculptural approach in the process through experiments with forms and incorporated layers to create unconventional silhouettes.
Moulded around the female body like a wrapped creature – a fragile fetus.
I work with a minimalistic palette where superfluous details are eliminated, with a focus on the essential design, textures and surfaces – heavy yet light, wet yet dry, soft yet stiff, rigorous yet organic, sensual yet innocent, strong yet vulnerable.
The garments are constructed with the purpose of packaging the body; manage not to stray away from their original purpose.
A clean, minimalist manifestation, were complex simplicity arises.”
