The New York-based artist Dike Blair has been creating gouaches paintings since the mid-80s, still lifes that detail diaristic settings, like that of a bar scene: cigarettes, resting in an ashtray; a Coca-Cola can, waiting to be finished.

For the upcoming Fall/Winter 2017 season, Études decided to join forces with the artist, coupling a part of the new collection with Blair’s Untitled (1992). This special collaboration particularly wishes to meditate those sometimes beautifully mundane moments of living, the component of (the many) things that make all of this worthwhile and becoming.
