Leave a Comment
Belgian designer is taking us on one unusual journey, in the depths of the Amazon rainforest in Brazil. "Illustrating his interest in the contradictory forces of disappearance and preservation, Cedric Jacquemyn's new collection references the uncontacted tribes of the Amazon, particularly the ones around the Rondônia region of Brazil. Ignoring the standardized discourse of globalization and remaining untouched by its ruthless logics, these tribes are nevertheless threatened by industries and deforestation, becoming extinct and bound to wither away."
Combining knitwear,leather and organic material, Cedric Jacquemyn designed experimental and urban collection at the same time. Designer created the tension between knowledge and innocence in forms, with its focus on intricate tailoring and textural contrasts.
