Mouton Collet Men SS10By Editor in Fashion on September 28th, 2009 | Please Comment !! »
Check out the Spring/Summer 2010 collection by French design duo Mouton Collet. Their men’s line for SS10 has launched already and the women’s line is set to release the first week of October.
They’re playful in their designs, mixing conventional and unconventional objects into their pieces transforming them into wearable pieces of art.
After different collaborative including work with Loulou de la Falaise, Kenzo Takeda, Nina Ricci by Olivier Theyskens and Herve Leger, Matthieu and Nicolas, the duo behind the jewellery line Mouton Collet developed their confidential line of handmade silver jewels and objects.
Their collection is presented like a personal diary, Journal Intime, and through strange poetic forms inspired by the vegetal and animal world. Mouton Collet plays with singular and incisive aethetics, connected to human emotions.
For their SS10 men’s collection, the designers invite us on a picnic, complete with all of the trimmings. The collection is a visual tourâ€deâ€force, which employs clever trompe lâ€™oeil elements with tremendous wit and vivid imagination to recreate the ideal summer experience.
It begins with a knives and utensils, charming bottle openers, then works through the sausages, mushrooms, and other edible delights, and even includes the flowers, flies, and little mice who might have shown up for a dibble of brie. Nothing is overlooked â€“not even the dillweed garnish or digestive biscuits. Of course, all of these objects have been cleverly reworked into a wearable collection of necklaces, bracelets, broaches, cufflinks, and tie clips. While the overall collection embraces an element of kitsch, each piece has been made to the highest level of perfection and has an element of sophistication.
Check out their site for more information. You’ll need to contact them directly, though, for access to the galleries of past collections. As with many designers today, they’ve got to keep images of the designs under wraps as other designers big and small are always on the lookout to copy the hottest new line. They were gracious enough to send us images of their latest line, though, which you can see below. Enjoy.
