Oh My!
I cannot express just how much I love this line - everything about it is so enrapturing.

Quote:

A garment of the mind has no appearance or style.

A discontinuous garment with all the right details and openings,

though never together at the same place or time.

It is a garment that is strangely animated with movements & gestures,

some of which belong to the garment whilst others seem to have been mine.

Above all, it is a garment whose structure is an elaboration of its development:

A garment in a perpetual process of being remade.

Fascinating thread I just found this. Their ironic concepts are not without reminding early victor & rolf experiments-> such as the promotion of an empty perfume bottle :p

I’m a bit less impressed with their pattern cutting ‘techniques’ The notes & sketches are amusing & almost a piece of performance art in itself…maybe that’s the point. But I find the results so ‘rudimentary’ (again, that’s probably the point but it doesn’t appeal to me) I had read about the pajama combat collection & that is perhaps my favorite in terms of the clothing The concepts are brilliant- Thanks for all this great info

i really liked their pattern cutting 'techniques.' it's so simple and yet so complicated. i don't know. i can't explain it. but, i adore it.

i do believe that they're a wee bit too dramatic. they seem like they needed to get over themselves. [sigh]

<3 farren.

I find this thread probably the most intriguing on TFS. Ive been following it for a while and it never fails to suck me in. The first time I read this I was sad for the rest of the day. A very horrible fate.

Misahoi, I had no idea theyre still making clothes. I thought it was over and done with. What's Nothing Nothing's story after they sold?

Never saw this thread. So inspiring - I love to, even kind-of, encounter people who see the world with the eye of both an artist and a scientist.

Thank you, cerfas.

You're welcome, strawberry.
I really like your comment, about "artist and scientist"
I think I, or someone else, mentioned earlier in the thread that Julian (one half of Nothing Nothing) is still designing. His new label is called Parc des Expositions. There are photos up somewhere, if not in this forum then you can do a search online.
