Future Perfect: Jean-Pierre Braganza's "Psychadelactica" for Spring 2010

The charming Jean-Pierre Braganza took us through his technology-obsessed spring 2010 collection recently at an event sponsored by the London Centre for Fashion Enterprise. The theme of Braganza's latest collection —"a hybrid of humans and machinery, like machinery wrapped around the human form"— is best expressed through structural folds, angular leather panels, and graphic black and white patterns.

Continuing his love affair with custom digital prints, Braganza layered black and white photographs of a ferris wheel in Berlin with graphic images of skulls to create this season's technology-inspired symmetrical print used for a pair of skinny trousers, a molded mini dress detailed with black origami folds, and a strong-shouldered, scoop-neck tee. Braganza remains inspired by the future, yet firmly planted in the moment.
