Dazed & Confused : How did the collaboration with Björk come about ?
Stefano Pilati : It happened naturally. I have long admired her work so the idea to collaborate proceeded organically. It was about the exchange and execution of ideas and inspirations. We worked on several proposals for jumpsuits – she wanted this silhouette specifically, a kind of uniform – so I sent various ideas, and in the end she focused on a shape from S/S09. Based on this pattern we did research into fabric, colour and embroidery possibilities, taking into account the vision Björk had for the look, which was something very much related to Biophilia, an aesthetic formed around planetary systems, crystal formations, the expansiveness of the universe. It was all done via email and telephone and a series of fittings in New York.
