Originally revealed at its Fall/Winter 2020 Paris Fashion Week show, Namacheko is now offering another look at its upcoming collaboration with Gregory Crewdson. The cooperative range builds on designer Dilan Lurr’s personal narrative in a look at his obsessions. Coming together with Gregory Crewdson, the capsule presents the photographer’s work in a new format and continues Namacheko’s character-building collections.
In an evocative voyeuristic exercise, Crewdson’s works are presented in a telescopic frame on a range of capes, coats, knitwear, dresses, tops and scarves. A central theme of the collaboration is the photographer’s view of troubled suburban America that perfectly contradicts the luxurious constructions that serve as a base for Crewdson’s photography. Aside from putting together its first take on denim, Namacheko utilized a sophisticated 18th-century method of warp printing that applies graphics to each individual yarn.
For more contemporary fashion, Professor.E lifts the hazy veil over its evocative SS20 collection.
