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. The collection is currently available at Dover Street Market in London and Tokyo, Atelier in New York, H. Lorenzo in Los Angeles, I.T. in Hong Kong and Beijing, and Rail in Brescia, Italy.
