Jean-Pierre Raynaud

16 Nov

Pièce d'Anarchive SS14Based on the parallels between constructing a house and building a fashion house, the Pièce d’Anarchive Spring/Summer 2014 Collection was influenced by Jean-Pierre Raynaud’s « La Maison » installation, that the French artist began constructing in 1969 and demolished in 1993 (for Pièce d’Anarchive’s presentation, Jean-Pierre Raynaud installed 64 stainless-steel buckets filled with rubble, taken from his « La Maison » demolition job).

Other Jean-Pierre Raynaud-inspired collections : Balenciaga by Nicolas Ghesquière Autumn/Winter 2011-2012 (the white tiles that were included in the scenography of this show paid tribute to Jean-Pierre Raynaud’s « Container Zero » installation), Tanya Taylor Autumn/Winter 2013-2014 (this collection drew inspiration from Jean-Pierre Raynaud’s modular ceramic-tile installations).

    There was a Dries Van Noten collection Spring RTW 2009 that offered the graphic squares.
    It was very interesting coming after his marbling effect pieces in 2008.

      Thank you so much for the really nice link : it’s always exciting to look at older collections on ! Checkerboards and squares are such graphic yet minimal patterns ! Thanks again for being so reactive !

        I really hope you don’t mind — I love fashion and linking things together. You offer a great springboard for my mind to leap off.

      Yes, Pièce d’Anarchive is a really creative brand ! Thank you very much for your kindness : this blog has been inside my mind for the last 6 years, because I had collected so many interesting inspirations, but it’s only 2 years ago (through a very harsh professional time) that I have finally created it (I didn’t even know that you could customize your blog and create categories !!!). Have a beautifully creative day !
