This fall's most arty collaborations
From a Friends tribute to Naruto references, through poetic drawings by Annette Messager, artists have been flirting with the fashion world. Here's a look at the most fashionnable arty collaborations of the fall.
Blancheporte X Annette messager
For Pink October, the northern e-tailer is offering limited edition scarfs, designed by French artist Annette Messager. The artists work is usually centered on femininity, intimacy or taboos. This square of organic cotton expresses all the beauty of the female body, and joy is acclaimed through the word "hallelujah". The pieces of this capsule committed to the fight against breast cancer were printed by the Roubaix-based association l'Atelier Agile. All of the profits will be donated to the Endowment Fund of the Lille University Hospital, Blancheporte announced. These squares will be available, in large and small format, on the e-tailer's website throughout the month of October.
Montblanc X Naruto
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the manga series created by Masahi Kishimoto, Montblanc signs a capsule inspired by the adventures of the ninja character Naruto Uzumaki. Connected watches, smart accessories like AirPod cases, and leather goods like the Sling bag, feature the effigy of the young hero. The golden nib of the house's iconic Meierstuck pen, which in this case uses orange ink, is adorned with the symbol of the "Hidden Leaf Village," where the little shinobi originated. The capsule collection will be available from October 11, 2022 in the Montblanc flagship on the Champs-Elysées, online, and also in Osaka in an temporary boutique dedicated to the collab.
Ysé X Madi
This fall, the French brand Ysé is mixing its brushes with those of Madi, a French painter, living in Lisbon. The 35-year-old's favourite inspirations, such as Matisse's cut-outs or Sonia Delaunay's work, intertwine on negligees and nighties, forming like a floral themed fresco. The patterns acheived with a double print enhance the lingerie pieces and night sets, in a light brown and orange palette. Frilly panties and wireless triangle bras, the brands iconic pieces, bring sensuality to the artists designs. The collection will be available for sale on the website and in boutiques starting October 15.
Maison Labiche X Friends
No stranger to collaborations, the Parisian brand continues its partnership with Hollywood's Warner Bros and now pays tribute to Friends, the most famous sitcom of the 1990s. Something to make fans of the show smile. Maison Labiche twists the logo of Central Perk, the Manhattan café where the six friends meet daily, applying it to T-shirts, sweatshirts and hats. Cult lines such as "Joey doesn't share food", "pivot, pivot, pivot" or even just the names of the characters are embroidered on the pieces in shades of mouse grey and bottle green. This unisex capsule will be available in stores and online for Thanksgiving in November.
Romualda X Enfant Précoce
Poetically named "Fleur des champs", the collaboration between Spanish brand Romualda and Cameroonian-born artist Enfant Précoce creatively celebrates nature. The five hats in the capsule, made from wild silk, are named after flowers such as dandelion, chicory and poppy. These hats with wide curved brims and ribbed details come in a thousand and one colors, to play with fashion and emotions. The collection is available on the e-shop of the accessories brand.
Fursac X De Rrusie
The men's brand of the SMCP group has teamed up once again with the artist De Rrusie, whom it exhibited last year in its Paris flagship in the 1st arrondissement. The self-taught painter, originally from Cameroon, has created a refined capsule of twelve pieces for Fursac that echoes his colorful canvases and work tools. On a silk scarf, the fabric is printed with one of his paintings. From the jet-black cashmere coat to the straight-laced shirts and long-sleeved honeycomb T-shirts, the collection's hues evoke De Rrusie's creative world. The house's creative director, Gauthier Borsarello, gave the 29-year-old artist carte blanche. The clothes he wore to paint will also be on display in the store when the collection goes on sale in six of the label's boutiques in Paris, London, Geneva and Antwerp in the fall.
