M/M (PARIS)

DESTEFASHIONCOLLECTION - CAPSULE COLLECTION 2007

The destefashioncollection project is a novel approach of investigating fashion, conceived by Dakis Joannou, Michael Amzalag & Mathias Augustyniak (M/M Paris) and Dennis Freedman. Each year, the DESTE Foundation commissions an artist to select five fashion designs relevant to that year to interpret visually and/or verbally through the creation of five related works. The goal is to create parallels between the actual objects and their interpretations, giving the viewer a deeper understanding of how fashion can be perceived.

For the first edition in 2007 M/M (Paris) produced 5 drawings inspired by fashion items by Comme des Garçons, Marc Jacobs, Balenciaga, Yves Saint Laurent and Givenchy. The clothed-covered box includes a booklet presenting M/M (Paris)’s fashion selections as well as 5 posters of their drawings.
