Coperni’s spray-painted dress
You’ve no doubt seen the finale of the Coperni show: Bella Hadid standing in nothing but a thong as two scientists spray at her body with a white chemical that eventually solidifies into cloth. Finally, the supermodel walks down the runway flaunting a white, off-shoulder slit dress. Spray-on fabric isn’t actually new; its creator Manel Torres, who was one of the scientists who “dressed” Hadid, had introduced the technology to the world in 2010. Similarly, most of Coperni’s latest collection came from what was once considered futuristic, such as The Matrix (a model sported a scarlet cutout dress as a nod to the Woman in Red) and Roblox (see the boxy cropped jackets meant to resemble the video game’s avatars). But newness or the lack thereof hardly mattered. Like The Matrix, that spray-on spectacle will never cease to look so darn cool.
