“Three As Four”

Witchcraft, science fiction, superstitions and religion were all abstractly yet literally (it does make sense) captured in this collection. Everything from the runway setting to the clothes, to the makeup, to the hair, everything was strategically arranged making this collection quite enchanting in a superstitious way while the models looked like nomad alien fairies. Threeasfour designers: Gabriel Asfour, Angela Donhauser and Adi Gil put together a collection using several religious and superstitious elements such as The Star of David or The Jewish Star that consist of 2 opposite triangles meaning the ruling tribe of Judah and the former ruling tribe of Benjamin, and the Evil Eye which can be translated as good or bad luck (it varies). But then, this is not a religious class I’m giving you. And those religious elements were sprung all over the collection either in prints over flowy chiffon or crafted in details such as in the 3rd look here, in the case of the Jewish Star; or used as embellishment in the case of the “Evil Eye”. In general this collection was beautifully crafted, making me put it in a neo-classic-experimental-kind-of-art that exorcises some of the many demons of our society.
