Nées des Archives

Art Direction - Photography - Design

«Nées des Archives» is a collective of artisans,  artists and designers who’s working on creating an evolving and eco-responsible clothing collection during their residency at the french Institution Mobilier National in Paris.

I worked as artistic director and photographer doing most of the visual creation work. I also designed and supervised the production of all the lycra pieces, using the pattern I created.

Part of the collection is based on a pattern inspired by the Mobilier National archive database called MNLAB. I twisted the shapes of these objects in a series of digital collages that I subsequently declined in combinations, tops and skirts in satin lycra.

Design and creation of the motis for this coat made in 100% upcycled wool made available to the institution's tapestry workshops. It was subsequently made entirely by hand and using a traditional carpet stitch by the liciere Margot Parcillié

Performing Machintosh is a video performance carried out within the residence which sets in motion the collection with the furniture from which it is inspired. The body becomes a witness to craftsmanship.
