The Ode to Artisans Fall Winter 15 collection was made in collaboration with the weavers in the remote Peruvian villages of Huancavelica and Patacancha. High up in the Andes mountains these communities thrive off the land to survive, where alpacas and sheep are one of their most valuable possessions.
REVOLT – Today we are proudly opening our online store with the second issue of our beloved publication. In our second issue we seek for the indicators for revolt movements within art, literature and especially fashion. Social movements, class and our gender roles influence the way we choose to represent ourselves. Throughout history revolutions have played out inside of closets. As we all know, style can help to affirm – or disrupt – the status quo. Fashion designers nowadays have strong political voices, and their creations speak for whole generations and movements. The most popular example would be Vivienne Westwood, who dedicates every show to a certain problem in society that she is involved in. When Rei Kawakubo and Yohji Yamamoto first introduced their collections to the Parisian public, they disrupted the European style and the japanese culture became a crucial part in the heart of couture. With easy accessibility through the internet these days it has become even easier to explore mindsets and cultures through clothes. The voice of Gosha Rubchinskiy within the post soviet youth is a very good example for that.
