Aitor Throup was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1980. In 2006, he completed an MA in Fashion Menswear at the Royal College of Art in London.
Aitor’s design process is centred around innovative methods of design and construction, in particular a construction process which utilises his own sculptures of the human body as a system for blocking garments.
The well respected fashion journalist Tim Blanks has cited him as one of fashion’s most influential people. Among the infinite collaborations with international fashion brands, Aitor Throup was appointed Creative Director of British rock band Kasabian, resulting in the designer’s music video directorial debut for the band’s song ‘Switchblade Smiles’.
In his latest work Aitor has been chosen by Damon Albarn to realise all the creative work around his new album Everyday Robots release.
The resulting artwork and video reflect Albarn’s interest in the tension between nature and technology, as well as the significance of him releasing his first ever solo work. “I think the idea of identity with him is a really interesting one because he is so identifiable, but all his projects have never been solo in a traditional sense,” continues Throup. “So the idea of giving him an identity, as a brand almost, is quite challenging. But it was throughly enjoyable.”
Everyday Robots features contributions from Brian Eno and Bat For Lashes.
