Andra Dumitrascu showed her Spring/Summer 2018 collection during Paris Fashion Week, at the Centre Pompidou metro station.
Titled “Kebaby“, this collection is an amalgam of numerous inspirations, usually deriving from the most mundane details of daily life that go unnoticed. What lies at the core is the aesthetics of a defunct Turkish kebab shop once encountered in Pigalle. The collection narrates states of in-betweenness, being constantly in transit and experiencing non-places. Rave culture merges with monastic elements. Featherweight nylon dusters, floor-sweeping trousers and caftans, and athletic performance-inspired gear come together in the form of couture sports. Liquid high-tech jerseys, ultra-lightweight running fabrics, and heavy denim shape a post-gender, post-ethnic language. Animated with subdued theatricality, the clothes play with weight and movement in a way that has a direct impact on self-perception and wearer’s attitude.
