In addition to collaborations with Adidas, Bally and the designer Christopher Shannon, Craig combines fabric with geometric objects and different forms and creates fascinating fashion sculptures. These sculptures reflect the relationship between the body and the space.
In his BA collection Craig stylized the body to a base for expressive geometric pattern. He transformed the form of the human body through garments into unnatural geometric shapes and makes the wearer look like a weird toy figure. Craigs MA collection expands the body through the use of generous surfaces and geometrical shapes into the room. The created monochromatic sculptures are highly aesthetical and reminds a little bit to abstract stage sets. In the current spring summer collection Craig adds ojects to his garments which indicate room situations. The colours of the ojects are perfectly matched to the garments and combine both to a fantastic all-over concept. The whole staging looks a little it strange and remind to African totem masks.
So is Craig Green more an artist who focuses the relationship of the body and the space and sets this theme always in new contexts. His work is comparable with designers like Henrik Vibskov and I am eagerly await will Craig make in the next time.
