ODE TO ONO
The art world embraced Threeasfour from the beginning — their bohemian lifestyle, performance art proclivities and eccentric collections making it an inevitable romance. This season, the label solidifies its bond with art by collaborating with legendary conceptual artist Yoko Ono. Ono’s Cut Piece performance work was the foundation for the runway presentation, with each model taking a snip along the seam of a spiraling dress until it fell to the floor, revealing a white bandeau swimsuit. Ono also offered her famous “dot drawings” as prints for the collection, which the design collective cut into their signature winding shapes, worn with leggings featuring circular cutouts. Strips and swirls of chiffon created volume at the calves of sleek leggings and meandered around an asymmetrical dress. Although the circular cutting was by no means new for Threeasfour, their overall sense of cool — with the help of Yoko Ono — prevailed.
