Born and exclusively made in Switzerland, Amorphose represents, through carefully crafted clothing and accessories, love, transformation and uniqueness.
The brand name was inspired by the technique of anamorphosis, a distorted projection requiring the viewer to look from a specific vantage point and/or use a special device to view a recognizable image.
Carried by a meticulous textile research, and created from start to finish in the Lugano atelier, collections explore a dreamlike, ethereal world, rendered in a playful, colourful way, as if seen through the eyes of a child.
Kallisto A/W Collection 2022
This collection stems from the myth of Kallisto, a nymph companion of the goddess Artemis, who, seduced by Zeus, gets turned into a bear by his jealous wife Hera. After she is hunted and killed in her new form, Zeus to honour his lover, places her in the sky in the form of the constellation Ursa Major.
While Amorphose continues to experiment with fabrics and uses cristallisation to translate starry skies on silk, or subtle manipulations on existing fabrics, the results are inspired pieces featuring spacial dreams, lunar shapes, nymphs and teddy bears.
The accessories, a colourful and irreverent clin d’œil to the ‘70’s LGBTQ subculture Hanky Code are reworked with vintage pieces.
