SILKS: contemporary "robes poèmes,"2016
This series of dresses are one-off custom creations for performances & special occasions. The dress is interpreted as an expressive, painterly, assemblage-like moving surface through Rhee’s own sensibility of color blocking, gestural strokes and geometries. Referencing Sonia Delaunay’s concept of Robe - poèmes (dress poems), but making the idea relevant to now, the studio creates contemporary dress-poem-assemblages.
