On July 2, 2018 in Paris, the designer Iris van Herpen presented her latest haute couture collection, entitled “Syntopia.” Heat-bonded and laser-cut corset dresses with dreamy organza details floated down the runway, and for the occasion, In 20 Steps, a glass kinetic installation by Studio Drift, hung above.

Originally seen in Studio Drift’s premiere solo museum exhibition, “Coded Nature,” at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam (April 25–August 26, 2018), In 20 Steps inspired Van Herpen’s collection. With “Syntopia,” the designers combined the elements of flight with technology to create an unforgettable alliance of art and fashion. No stranger to experimenting with materials or applied science, Van Herpen has yet again pushed the boundaries of the impossible for a new sculptural collection.
