Eugénie's third collection, for summer 2014-15, was primarily inspired by the scientific research of the Large Hadron Collider based at CERN, Switzerland, and I had to Google the Large Hadron Collider to know what it was. The Large Hadron Collider is, in fact, the world's most powerful particle collider, and is used by scientists to test the relative (lol, physics joke) merits of particle theories, and in particular to test the legitimacy of the Higgs boson particle which is thing I simply do not understand and never will.
These scientific concerns are present in Eugénie's collection in everything from the blue printed textile, to the sculptural accuracy of the construction of the dresses, to the–empty!–spaces present in the lace pieces. Science and fashion collide! (Like atoms or something!)
Eugénie is one of New Zealand's most exciting new designers, and you can take a look at her new store, and hear about why she decided to open it, here, and check out the photos from her debut Marr Factory show here.
