ANDREA GROSSI designed not only a collection but like in a video game, also bodies and characters. Welcome to Deusland, named after the book Homo Deus, addresses 21st century problems such as social sustainability by putting our current worldviews in a historical perspective, especially the parallelism between Nazism and the church. “As an 18th century dress appears to be out of its own age and the rules, clothes and political choices of today could also be considered absurd and wrong in the future.”
Fusing technology and craftsmanship with Tuscan and Umbrian leather goods, the collection is made using innovative laser cutting, embossing and bonding techniques with an added alternative denim fiber of low environmental impact. Through skin processing techniques Andrea reproduced the human body, face and skin muscles. In Deus Land man approaches being “God”; he creates himself and what surrounds him.
