EGONLAB presents the fall winter 2023 collection in Paris. The show is PARASOMNIA and is dedicated to Rene Glemarec and Vivienne Westwood.
Reality, lucid dream, the power to live it all.
As the boundaries established between worlds dissolve, just like our conventions, we must choose and define our relationship with reality. Our awakened journey begins in the real world, the daily routine of a world we endure, punctuated by interactions, encounters, and battles.
But where reality limits us, the world of dreams opens up possibilities. An escape on the pillow, we dream of our future without suffering the consequences. We close our eyes and let the dream guide us, open us up, and sometimes even engulf us. To sleep to accomplish.
In a world where we are told nothing is possible, we must continue dreaming of moving forward and changing things. The strength of the sleeping world will allow us to surpass ourselves in the awakened world. Awakened and revealed, our paths are traced with force.
In this dream filled with hope, a dress code with deliberately 90’s inspirations is spreading. A period when grunge reshuffles the cards. A pervasive pessimism, like a bitter taste of metal.
Take power with little but with force. This is what we celebrate.
Our collection is imbued with a tailored spirit to these grunge uniforms of “the school of life”. Flare pants, crop tops, ample materials, we say yes to the relics of a committed time. Dream to reality, the contrast is also played out in the sleeves. The oversize will conceal the bodies. The argyle comes to play as an emblem of the present time.
The eyelids are closing; the eyes move as we enter paradoxical sleep. We play with overlays for a colorful wardrobe like surreal synesthesia, living in the cuts, colors, and prints as the dream set the pace.
Freed from reality, our identities blur, and generations blend. X Y Z Alpha will explore several worlds and take power. Dreams, as well as nightmares, shape our beliefs and will take us forward. We need to believe.
