The first part of the show introduces L’HOMME ROUGE’s Fall/winter collection “Blind Dimensions” where designer Jonatan Härngren have been playing with the abstract perceptions of the blind.
Following is the Spring/Summer collection named “The Garden Group”, a strong fictitious group that had an urban break-out during the green wave in the 70’s. This collection features elements like Swedish allmoge, gardening and old table cloths.
The L’HOMME ROUGE ambition is to challenge the conventional and conservative menswear norms through poetic expressions and patterns in the borderland between arts and commercial design.
In total, Sónar 2017 will feature more than 140 performances across 9 stages, including brand new shows from Justice, Arca (live) & Jesse Kanda (av), Soulwax, DJ Shadow, Nicolas Jaar, Moderat, Eric Prydz, De La Soul, Anderson.
“Essentials is the perfect blend of product and culture from a brand like Converse. Focussed around classic sportswear items, redefined for streetwear….it mirrors the story of Converse as a brand, born in sport, raised by the streets.”
For the Fall/Winter 2017 collection, Gildas Loaëc and Masaya Kuroki, co-founders and artistic directors of Maison Kitsuné, drew their inspiration from American pop culture and the aesthetic and creative energie of New York born, Paris based, artist William Klein.
