Aitor Throup ‘Legs’
“‘Legs’, the result of six years of ‘new object research’, aims to celebrate trousers and elevate them from their position as mere commodities to original objects d’art. Challenging the biannual dictates of the fashion industry, ‘Legs’ presents 24 archival trousers alongside three new reinterpretations of trousers found within previous collections.
Uniquely, the starting point of Aitor Throup’s creative process does not involve a specific vision as to what the final garment may be. Instead, free form, drawn illustrations of imaginary characters with distinct anatomies lead to overarching, narrative driven concepts that predetermine what the final creation shall be. In place of aesthetic frivolity is a responsibility to make nothing fall outside the register of an artistic statement or experience. It is an approach Throup describes as “Justified Design”, in which all design features are the results of — and justified by — the various processes pioneered by the designer.”
