When fashion becomes an art form, it contends for immortality. Or, more realistically, it achieves a timeless appeal also made up by that which is not art. Because clothes that recount a story are destined for a more attentive interpretation and conservation. If they also have something authentic to say on those who conceived them, then it’s a done deal, we’ll see them in a different light. Among experimental forms and atelier projects, subtle balances and textured materials, cultural backgrounds and architectural citations, we hold tight to those pieces that can communicate beyond the here and now.
