The commercial towing spaceship Nostromo, owned and operated by the Earth mega-corporation Weyland-Yutani, is on a return trip to Earth hauling a refinery and twenty million tons of mineral ore, with a seven-member crew in stasis. Detecting a transmission of unknown origin from a nearby planetoid, the ship’s computer awakens the crew. Acting on standing orders from their corporate employers, they set out to investigate the transmission’s source…

The shapes and patterns of NOSTROMO, as well as the materials, are inspired by the spacesuits (work of Moebius), structures and interiors of ships, as well as the anatomy of the creatures and textures that appear both in the Alien saga films and in the work of the artist H. R. Giger. Quilted fabric and simile neoprene create structured outerwear, mikado combines with technological organza which creates plastic glazes, and the skin is pierced and pembossed to give life to the dermis of the alien along with pleated satin. A collection of futuristic lines that mingle with biological textures to use from morning to night. 

 

                       

The collection of jewelry is the result, once again, of the Leyre Valiente collaboration with sculptor Imanol Quero (IQ by Imanol Quero).

For this collection Leyre Valiente has designed a special line of boots and ankle boots produced by FRONTIERE. Collection may be purchased through the websites of both brands and multi-brand stores.

The scenery of the show has been made by dP ANDROMEDA, with the collaboration of Imanol Quero as author of the alien eggs.
