Trained in Ballet, Fine Art, and Fashion Design, British artist Nat Mackie’s work marries an strong inspiration from both constructivism and suprematism, with a love for the materiality of fabric, and its engagement with the human form. Taking this decidedly soviet influence as a starting point, his formalist, structural pieces concomitantly exaggerate and obscure the human form. In demand for styling on short films, and closely integrated into London fashion, this young designer has already proven his worth designing for the likes of Wrangler, Vans and The North Face, working closely with their design studios in LA. While continuously in dialogue with the constantly changing and unpredictable laws of aesthetics, Nat’s conceptualises his work as serving to ground the individual to their geo-historical space, in a time that is ever more disconnected and uncertain, through the inherently historicised nature of fashion design.
