I had already seen Faustine Steinmetz’s fabulous denim on denim collections in Paris, but I find her work and her ideas so truly amazing, that I am always enthralled to learn what she is up too next. Collection 008 again takes denim as the core of its ideology.
Each look of the season has a sense of duality running through it, oscillating our understanding of what is ugly or vulgar and what is elegant and chic.
Crystal-covered, overtly-washed, logo-monogrammed denim is revisited with a new more artful and sculptural perspective, while innovative digital printing and hand-dyed denim are used to adorn hand woven denims.
As a denim lover myself, I simply adore this designer’s work.
