The designers looked through the vast natural history collections of the Museum and were inspired by the idea of preservation and display. In response the designers hung pieces from their Winter 2012 collection in sealed plastic bags. Even veiled, the textures and shapes were dramatic, and acid bright pops of neon gave a welcome jolt against the dim background. Elegant furniture partnered well with the fashionable shrouds, while incredibly clear digital images of shells and insects from the Natural History archives cycled on screens around the room.
