Strictly speaking, Julia Carpenter is not an insect but Spider-Man‘s girlfriend and a superheroine. Through an injection of spider venom and exotic plant extracts, she gets her superpowers and becomes the godmother of the collection of the same name. Camouflage maneuvers and show business are successful survival strategies not only in the insect world but equally as well in fashion design.Sabine Portenier and Sarah Haug have literally appropriated the metamorphosis : from simple T-shirt to one-of-a-kind piece, from slim silhouette to surprising volume, from morning to evening. Graphic elements transform into comic animations and submerge the sculptural models into a futuristic-seeming world in which nothing is as it seems.
Through time lapse, the fashion film narrates a day in the life of Julia.
