Aitor Throup 2013 “New Object Research” Collection

This man is a fucking genius….It’s taken quite a while, but we’d say it was worth the wait. Aitor Throup‘s first full clothing collection has finally hit the shops seven years after his graduation from the Royal College of Art. “New Object Research” is the amalgamation and result of archetypal concepts that the Argentinian-born, London-based designer and artist has been exploring for a while now — stuff we’ve seen in his previous capsule collections like the Shiva skull bag, Skanda jacket and Saxophone shirt. His long fascination with the human anatomy and the evolution of his study of construction and fabrication have culminated in these convention breaking designs: an original zipper system, cutting-edge buttonhole technology, trousers that don’t finish at the ankles, out-of-this-world seams, and ergonomic sleeves that anticipate movement. Throup has even engaged a design firm to create rotating, 360-degree views of the pieces for his new website which will launch this Wednesday, October 16.

Rumoured to have been in development for well over 6 years, fashion designer & sculptor Aitor Throup will finally launch his much touted line of products. In a recent exhibition entitled New Object Research Aitor revealed for the first time to the public one of the 22 archetypes to be included within the first range, the Shiva Skull Bag. The military inspired bag is constructed out of exact specifications based off of the shape of a human skull made up in tweed and leather and represent a clear direction of an almost scientific approach taken by the Aitor within his range. The bag is set to release globally at a few retailers early 2013.
