THE ART OF FASHION ELECTRONIC AURA + MAIKO TAKEDA

ATMOS BY POSTMATTER

 

RCA trained milliner Maiko Takeda, POSTmatter created an ethereal film for her Atmospheric Reentry series, which explored the female form and the electronic aura of organisms.

POSTmatter developed Maiko Takeda’s first ever use of black light technology in a collection, injecting her fragile yet powerful designs with an unearthly glow. Since graduation from the RCA in 2013, Maiko Takeda has notched up an impressive range of editorial and high profile collaborations with the likes of Bjork. Her minimal and clean approach to design holds echoes of her Japanese upbringing, but her true focus is on material innovation and optical illusion.
