So while researching about Maison Martin Margiela Artisanal Fall 2014 show which I blogged about in my previous post, I came across this set of images by photographer Lorenzo Vitturi. I won’t go into the itsy bitsy details about artistic direction and conceptual stuff ’cause I want this post to be a light one.
Most importantly, looking at the MMM Artisanal Spring 2014 collection, the usage of resurrected rare objects from the past – a 1920 Bauhaus tapestry, 50s pin-up tattoo embroidery designed by Sailor Jerry, a tapestry of Paul Gauguin’s 1896 painting “La femme du roi”. – just further enhances MMM Artisnal’s take on layers and reinvention.
