Dutch fashionlabel MAISON the FAUX showed for the first time in New York, invited by MADE. Their theme: Chubby Chaser. Once again MTF showed their view on fashion by the means of a conceptual collection presentation. A strange fat worshipping ritual took place at Milk Studios. Having models continuously circling around a giant blow-up fat-tent and worshipping the ultimate “Chubby Chaser” queen. MTF likes to shake thing up. According to their pressrelease: ““CHUBBY CHASER” is a never ending desire for more, more, more. In the insanely strange world of fashion, fashion houses act as godlike institutions; telling us how to look, act and who we should be. Fashion seems to be a repeating ritual of brands overfeeding us. We are never satisfied; only ever hungry for more.”
The “Chubby Chaser” collection consists out of a number of looks restraining excessive fabric and skin. Garments with carefully proportioned excess of fabric, breast augmentation dresses and cinched waists to exaggerate the overabundance of bare skin. Mi-parti, denim, leather, recycled furs, slits, knits, silk in earthy tones of nude as well as fleshy baby pink and baby blue. To create “CHUBBY CHASER” MTF worked under the art direction of Joris Suk and Tessa de Boer together with a number of creative partners called “les Résidents”. The label is convinced that young talent and concession free designs are an important addition to the current fashion landscape.
