Planet Iris

Fashion with alien references are always interesting. We have this ardent desire to decipher their origin may it be supported with theories or merely human instincts and as a result, we create them in many ways. Iris Van Herpen did. There will always be a heightened level of drama , power and fear in narrating an extra terrestrial story . Iris Van Herpen's couture collection has it all. My thoughts brought me back to the sc--fi alien movie Prometheus I watched last month. This time her shoes resembled a mutated organism covered with a thick sheath of lipid that has needle-like fangs. Scary but beautiful.
