                An expression of endless creativity: The sculptured fashion body.

                With “Get Lucky”, the first hit of the summer 2013 still ringing in our ears, it's the right time to look behind the music. The French duo with it's robotic helmets and style seems to be a proof for the ongoing Retro-Trend quoting the bodystyle of the 80's.


                Often seen as a dark age of fashion, the 80's were the starting point of a concept of “total fashion body” - the idea of not only clothing your body but giving the body a new characteristic shape: The V-Body with it's typically broad shoulders as an overstatement of masculinity.


                Daft Punk takes things further to a new artistic sculpturing of the human figure. Hence expressing at the same time the “astronautic and aquanautic looks” of human reality in our concrete existence and showing off like science fiction. In fashion the realization of phantasy happens with colors, pattern cuts, structured 3D fabrics… and padding… the secrets of Bodyshaping.
