Won Hundred Spring/Summer 2017 collection honours the spontaneous and abstract CoBrA art movement from the late 50s.
“The feeling of free expression and experimental complexity of art has enthused us to take a more raw and unisex approach to the collection.” – Nikolaj Nielsen, Founder and Creative Director of Won Hundred
In the documentary “Some kind of Monster“, a portrait of the band Metallica, drummer Lars Ulrich decides to sell items from his art collection, including paintings by the post-war avant-garde CoBrA group. This meeting between CoBrA and heavy metal inspired Nikolaj Nielsen to create a collection with a similarly unexpected mix.
Taking inspiration from English royalty and Kings’ scandals of abdications to the art paint and costumes of Ainou and African tribes or even from their own experience of brotherhood, Valentin and Florentin Glémarec explored family, power games and a affiliation.
