“What makes a photograph magical is that you can make things happen that don’t happen in real life”. These are the words of Viviane Sassen (@vivianesassenstudio), the Dutch artist known for her deep love of Africa that can be witnessed in the images that have marked her entire career. The million faces of a land and its peoples have become a source of true inspiration for Roberto Collina’s men’s summer collection that has transported the wise use of geometric patterns and abstract chromatic choices that are so typical of the Dutch photographer, into their garments.
Colour addiction tout court is what characterises Tekla Evelina Severin (@teklan), the Swedish photographer who can make a pure concentration of colour so inherent in every single thing truly stand out in her pictures. The veil of colourful magic surrounding her photos has led the brand to create a personal interpretation of Caribbean islands in its women’s summer collection.
