Robert Wun’s ideal girl >> “I envision my muses in my dreams when I am designing,” he says. “They must be striking, independent and bizarre in a sophisticated, yet appealing way.”
Robert Wun is a luxury fashion label, based in London and aimed at creating ingenious garments with a sophisticated vision, to inspire independent individuals with original beliefs and strong identities. The chaotic interplay between Nature and artificial forms is the centre of the design ethos: through resourcing in the novelty of nature and the revolutionary forms of the artificial world, Robert Wun believes in such contradictions – promising ideas generated through the process of complexity. Dictating the new ‘futuristic’ through innovative manufacturing yet with uncompromising attention to traditional values; creating harmony by combining enlightening ideas with sophisticated craftsmanship, bringing a new dimension to luxury garments and also to the young London fashion industry.
After graduating from London College of Fashion in 2012 with a graduate collection that set him apart from the crowd entitled “BURNT”, Robert Wun was ready to lay out his vision for redefining his ideas of wearable art that depicted a strong inter-relation with Mother Nature. Strongly inspired and awed by the long standing relationship and love between man and Nature, his follow up collections after Burnt, explores and seeks to understand how this fascination and bond between Man and Nature has evolved over time focusing his attention on specific themes and concepts.
Robert’s AW14 collection “VOLT” highlights innovative construction techniques with ultra modern silhouettes and eye-catching accessories. Fusing futuristic surrealism with exaggerated silhouettes, bold daring colours and carefully executed fine tailoring that captures the intricate but purposefully placed subtly and yet very visible custom made trimmings that convey Wun’s classic signature to a tee, Robert proves yet again that he is more than capable of creating luxury garments that can essentially become wearable art pieces. His uncompromising attention to detail and traditional values in tailoring pulls through his ideas of depicting the processes of complexity through sophisticated craftsmanship that builds firmly on his design aesthetics which becomes beautiful and breath-taking to watch as it develops into real form luxury.
