SPRING-SUMMER COLLECTION 2022 RAMI KADI COUTURE SS 2022 COLLECTION LUCID ALGORITHMS Rami Kadi’s Collection Couture Spring Summer 2022, which he named “Lucid Algorithms,” is an ode to a world which sees the physical and the digital rethink the boundaries that separate them.
A curious spirit by heart, Rami Kadi never shied away from marrying his couture with new technology, pioneering by that several innovations. From boldly launching a collection that glows in the dark to being the first designer to introduce a cyber fashion show before COVID-19, Rami Kadi has always been one of the earliest adopters of technology in couture. With his new collection, Rami Kadi ventures further into a world of codes, NFT, and metaverse.
In what just might be the first-ever human-computer couture collaboration of this scale, Rami Kadi has created the elements which would come to designate the base of his new theme. He then fed those elements into an algorithm, in an attempt to understand how the artificial mind comprehends our beauty. The result was an array of new and unprecedented visuals that combine the creativity and perception of both humankind and machinery.
Rami Kadi reinterpreted those visuals to design all but one of the Collection Couture Spring Summer 2022. As for that final dress, Rami Kadi used one of the visuals, as is and unchanged in a clear nod to the capabilities of artificial intelligence. What resulted was an astonishing window into a whole new genre of design, where colors open up new bridges between seasons, universes, and realities, and amplify the singularity of savoir faire.
“To me, the discussion is not about whether we see this change as something positive or negative. To me, it is inevitable. It is a change that has already started to happen and just as I seek beauty in everything around me, I also see beauty in algorithms.”
The collection features 40 dresses made from holographic materials that flaunt strong bold colors. Through lively pulsations and contrasting rhythms, Rami Kadi affirms the energy and strength of color. The dresses of Rami Kadi’s Lucid Algorithms collection appear to flirt with the light around them. The holographic materials absorb pigmentation and reinterpret the colors of light, leaving us with a shimmering effect.
Anticipating a metaverse-centric future, Rami Kadi is among the designers who are pioneering couture in a virtual world.
