Fashion designer Arnar Már Jónsson  is a 2013 graduate of the Iceland Academy of the Arts.

His final collection is inspired by films – cyber punk movie Tetsuo, in which the body of a Japanese worker begins transforming into a scrap-metal after being involved in an accident.





The collection is mainly based on this utopian world that is similar to the film. This is a world beyond time, where textiles are alive and garments both morph and shed.



Garments intertwined and engage in a kind of metamorphoses. Like the stages that a butterfly has to go through from being an egg until reaching the stage of a butterfly the garments go trough a similar process.

Garments morph or transform from one garment to another, as happens with the butterflies and other organisms. Trees go through shedding where new bark is formed this process also takes place, for example textiles change from being woven fabrics in knitted fabric.
