This video, unveils how Japanese artist Hajime Sorayama created the giant female robot that took center stage at Dior’s Pre-Fall 2019 menswear show in Tokyo.
Kim Jones, artistic director of Dior menswear, commissioned Sorayama to create the giant, retro-futurist robot. It took the form of an “idealised woman”, with details embossed to resemble mechanical joints, nuts and bolts across its body.
The artist explains in the film that the project marks 40 years since he first started drawing designs for robots:
“I’ve never created a statue this big before. I got excited by the idea of doing something new.”
