AW 1819 moves with dazzling and infectious energy towards a future it is shaping in all magnificence. A wealth of ideas and a new world of possibilities light the way to moving beyond old formulas, inventing new models, initiating motion, and putting people at the centre of the action. Choices, guided by the pursuit of pleasure and well-being, are especially infused with a desire for freedom edging on rebellion, and a willingness to flaunt absurdity, to constantly surpass the expected. Reality is broken into pieces, and imaginatively reassembled. Dreamed worlds surpass all digital experimentations – they are limitless, head-spinning, enticing and enigmatic. They make the craziest ideas come true, clashing space and time, and reconciling the irreconcilable. The season sparks dualities and new meetings, which, whether harmonious, contrasting or absurd, are all unfailingly forthright and committed.
