RUBBER-MADE: “Latex is the future,” insisted Atsuko Kudo, the fashion designer who created the azure rubber outfits for both stars of this season’s fashion week campaign: model Natasha Poly and the Mercedes-Benz SL.
At the presentation for the Mercedes-Benz autumn key visual, Kudo revealed to WWD that she is now taking her favorite material to the big screen.
“I made the latex outfits for the upcoming ‘Zoolander 2’ movie. It was really exciting,” she said.
Poly explained that during the shoot it took a team of three people 15 minutes to get her into her latex dress in the Miami heat.
“But it was worth it!” she exclaimed.
Braving the frosty Berlin January weather, Poly said she was happy to be back in the German capital after eight years, “because last time I was here I didn’t get to experience the nightlife. I’m really looking forward to going out tonight.”
