The women’s collection pays tribute to Brainard’s work through prints, jacquards and marquetry, and also through collage as a method and mindset.
The latest women’s precollection and men’s runway collection are now available. First presented as a 200-page hardbound volume A Show in a Book, the collections are inspired by the work of artist and writer Joe Brainard (1942–1994). Key pieces featuring his iconic, genre-defying art will be arriving soon – sign up below for alerts.
The book gathers rarely seen artworks, comics, printed matter and ephemera created by Joe Brainard throughout the 1960s and 70s.
Pre-order ‘A Show in a Book’, the 200-page volume devoted to FW21’s inspiration, Joe Brainard.
The collection celebrates gathering, folding, tying, wrapping and draping as expressions of the impromptu spirit of collage —a juxtaposition of elements that is both organic and surprising; spontaneous and dreamlike.
Ready-to-wear, bags and accessories are emblazoned with Brainard’s paintings, quotes and Pansies artwork. The tone is concise and direct: lines are clean, volumes are loose, colours are earthy and vivid.
