Jean-Pierre Raynaud

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).
