As part of a series called Future Tense created by SHOWstudio, Vox Humana is Rodarte’s contribution in collaboration with filmmaker Griffin, and featuring Jenny Lewis. It is a “Lynchian, dystopian vision of Los Angeles with a menacing twist.
’Vox Humana’- Latin for ‘Human Voice’ – examines this decidedly sinister side of their design ethos. Featuring one of the sisters’ signature (and suitably distressed) ‘slasher’ dresses in plucked and laddered mohair, a setting straight from their Californian hometown and a melancholy soundtrack sung by their grandmother in the 1940s, Vox Humana is a resolutely personal creation. Nevertheless, as with their painstakingly handwrought creations, it represents a new aesthetic with major global impact.” –SHOWstudio
