New levels were reached with art and fashion at the Paris Fashion Week when designer Coperni spray-painted a dress onto Bella Hadid. The brand which is heralding advancement in the world of fashion with new technology in fabrics, was co-founded by Sébastien Meyer and Arnaud Vaillant.
Coperni has indeed taken the fashion world by storm with the closing look for their spring 2023 collection. A stunt that had their rivals in choke hold, alongside attendees and the rest of the world in astonishment. Of all the enthralling pieces showcased at the event, Hadid’s dress was a show-stopper.
Founders of the Paris-based women clothing brand started their haute couture business in 2013. Although the duo maintained a long standing friendship even before their collaboration. Meyer and Vaillant first met whilst studying at Mod’Art in 2009 and went ahead to foster an alliance.
Coperni equally made the front pages of blogs and magazines earlier this year after fabricating a hand-blown glass bag. American singer Doja Cat wore the handbag named Swipe to the Grammys.
The Coperni handbag is a clever interpretation of Apple’s iPhone ‘swipe to unlock’ graphic. An 18-karat gold version of the swipe bag also made debut on the runway this season. The gold is available to luxury bag collectors who desire custom made pieces designed by Gabriele Veneri.
Coperni founders who tied the knot on a secluded island in Greece are keen on reinventing styles from bygone ages. Smartly infusing it with cutting-edge technology.
Coperni’s Spring 2023 Collection
Bella Hadid Stuns Wearing Coperni’s New Technology In Fabrics
American model Bella Hadid, who has made twenty-seven appearances on international Vogue magazine covers stole the Coperni’s Spring/Summer 2023 show.
At the event, onlookers kept wondering about the constituent of the receptacle used to create the iconic piece of clothing. Its magical transformation into a dress and the rationale behind the entire creation.
Sébastien Meyer admitted to discovering the magical apparatus called Fabrican while browsing the internet. Working with his scientist acquaintance, Dr. Manel Torres for nearly six months before the collection debuted to re-introduce a groundbreaking technology that was previously invented for the fashion industry.
Fabrican -fabric from a can- is the cutting edge, new technology in fabrics that has grasped the contrivance of designers all over the world. A cross-linking of fibers creates the fabric. The fibers adhere to each other and to the surface sprayed to create an instant non-woven fabric.
To achieve the clean execution of Bella Hadid’s spray-on dress, the liquid suspension was sprayed using spray guns. Although the spray-on fabric technology also implements aerosol cans or a single robotic sprayer, to create multiple products with different characteristics.
When the spray-on fabric comes in contact with air, it turns into a solid, stretchy material that feels like suede. As seen in the video, the liquid fabric conforms to the shape or surface it comes into contact with.
Fabrican uses different types of fibers, from natural to synthetic, including keratin fibers such as wool and mohair, cotton, nylon, cellulose, and carbon nano-fibers.
It is rapidly becoming a valuable equipment for manufacturing face masks, casts, bandages and protective garments. The non-woven, liquid fabric inside a can offers seamless application, along with cosmetic-grade constituents for consumer safety.
The spray-on fabric seems to hold much promise for the future which several industries are seeking to exploit and maximize.
Meyer divulged that the dress won’t be for sale, but expressed the importance of pushing the boundaries of technology and design to create a moment that may go down in fashion history.
Arnaud Vaillant, ahead of the show also disclosed that the brand sought to recognize technological innovations. “We’re not going to make money on this but it’s more of a celebration of innovation and having strong moments in fashion because we’re passionate about pushing fashion forward,” he said.
