Harikrishnan set Instagram alight, when he sent models wearing inflatable latex trousers of balloon-like proportions down the runway during his graduate show at LCF

The collection was not just comprised of memeable pants. Harikrishnan split the show into three sections – “craft, latex and tailoring” – with the concept of “familiarity versus unfamiliarity” at the heart of the edit. “People connect to the inflatable trousers because they are unfamiliar,” he explains of the striped catwalk creations he paired with boxy blazers. “We see the same things again and again through social media, so I wanted to invite them to question why this is by creating a new ‘unfamiliar’ visual.”

The 3D trousers started life in a clay model. Thirty individual panels made from three metres of Supatex were then stuck together by hand, leaving room for a seven millimetre-wide inflation valve at the bottom. Harikrishnan, who blew up his own trial pairs but used a pump for the show, maintains the wide leg-styles are easy to slide into, and require a mere two minutes of deflation time before hopping out of them afterwards. Once fully pumped up, “It feels like you’re floating,” he smiles.
