Aitor Throup – Anti-Fragile Fashion and Art
As the fashion world implodes, a handful of authentic artists are displaying a special kind of resilience. Aitor Throup is one of them. He constantly delivers a vision of something radical and poignant. His all-or-nothing, hardcore-cerebral, cryptic-graphic gambit is riveting and thrilling. It’s what makes him one of the more aesthetically alive, anti-fragile designers out there.
Hailing from Buenos Aires, Argentina and headquartered in Amsterdam, Aitor Throup stands as shorthand for subterrestrial cool, channeling restless artistic energy and dramatic high-concept design into an inimitable vision, one that fascinates through novelty and heterodoxy. Aitor has been fucking with the fashion system for over a decade, interrogating commercialism, consumer culture and capitalist ideology through sartorial booby traps and subliminal messaging. Amalgamating architecture, freestyle moto X, military aesthetics and music, the designer hammers out full-throttled, crosshatched concepts.
Such restless energy has sustained Aitor’s post-industrial/punk-inflected output, which we worship. Conceptualizing G-Star Raw‘s ranges (his current gig) and straddling A.T. Studio, New Object Research, Stone Island and plenty of other fully loaded projects, Aitor brings shock tactics and entrepreneurial razzmatazz to everything he does. His creative canvas remains defined by wit and rebellion, spawning unexpected synergies of silhouettes, materials, colors and contrasts.
Under his philosophically-rich direction, seemingly disparate tops, trousers, jackets, and diagrams are subversively united by an ethos rooted in deconstructive tailoring, intriguing material detailing and unexpected juxtapositions.
Viewed at a distance, one finds Aitor has constructed a logical yet surrealist design universe unto itself, one which he constantly evolves, mutates and transfigures. At VIVISXN, we adore his military-inspired, tactically tilted output — a totally alluring combo of resistance, intelligence and graphic fury. Aitor is gearing up to launch The DSA, a streetwear-forward medley oeuvre featuring his dope doodles, wears, sound and sculpture. We are FUCCCKKKIN‘ amped-up! Explore here and below.
Keep up the great work, Aitor!
