For PARC Series 2, we have created a print-focused, positive and life-affirming set of separates taking the form of T-shirts, shirts, shorts, trousers and hoodies; collaborating with textile designer James Millar (former Design Director of Liberty London), and jewellery in the form of rings, earrings and identity bracelets, completing the capsule collection.
During the lockdown we had to change the way we’ve been able to photograph and showcase collections in the past – no conventional look book, no model casting. It challenged us to think differently and shoot the pieces ourselves in our studio.
We wanted to create a sense of life, optimism and movement while dealing with our feelings of isolation and missing touch, missing our friends and loved ones, where a digital interaction just can’t beat a physical one.
To help aide what we’d been missing, we turned to three wonderful artist friends to interact and collaborate with:
These creators are all known for their amazing artworks and collages; we’re super-fans!
We asked Damien, Patrick and Scott to re-interpret the new capsule collection in their own unique way and create three works each, for PARC to exhibit here and on our Instagram as part of a special project during Digital LFW, June 2020.
