In her debut collection, Larissa von Planta roams through a mansion encountering characters whose textiles she reimagines for the next generation.
The collection is a celebration of the emotion that treasured materials hold, as she conducts a structured dance between the antique and the modern. The personal stories behind the fabrics and her own experiences give character to each dress and sustain their beauty for a timeless aesthetic.
The objective behind the collection is a desire to radically change consumer attitudes towards fashion. It puts the emphasis back on preservation and memory, using irreplaceable materials to create innovative sustainable textiles. New is outdated, and old is reborn, as Larissa reclaims forgotten gems for contemporary couture.
