Helen Kelen - Cyber Sonance
The Cyber Sonance collection embodies the pulsating essence of techno music, the electrifying atmosphere of clubbing, and the otherworldly allure of sci-fi films set in dystopian landscapes. The fusion of different textiles and materials reflects the art of mixing electronic music, igniting the spirit, and redefining the boundaries of sustainable fashion inspired by the movement and sound of techno music. Drawing inspiration from the beauty of abandoned spaces, each clothing item in this collection transports the wearer to a realm where the past and future converge. Through the prism of dance and body movement, the collection showcases the fluidity and gracefulness of motion, transforming fabric into an extension of the body, thus intensifying the ecstatic state of consciousness. The collection was styled by Marcela Vrček, using unique, handcrafted jewelry from the DIP 'N' DRIP brand, designed by Monika Zubović, which further emphasizes the body and the freedom of dance movement.
HELEN KELEN is a graduate textile and fashion designer who launched her brand in early 2020. In her work, she uses surplus textiles from factories and discarded clothes so that they don't end up in landfills. The brand offers new interesting solutions, combining the smallest pieces of fabric from textile production to make a different and unique garment. Drawing inspiration mainly from electronic dance music and rave culture, the designer offers a fresh, hybrid aesthetic of clothing based on organic and sustainable production. The unique design features vibrant colors, tie-dye patterned materials with contrasting outer seams, and comfortable sporty cuts. DIP N DRIP is a distinctive and striking jewellery hand-made in Zagreb by Monika Zubović, mostly inspired by her childhood and growing up at the beginning of the new millennium. She shapes all her memories into jewellery whose appearance is influenced by numerous Y2K motifs. Jewellery is carefully crafted using glass beads, Swarovski crystals, vintage beads and pendants, natural semi-precious stones, and metals. The models are made in small series, while the focus is on unique models.
