MERT & MARCUS 1994 X DSQUARED2 COLLECTION

A leap ahead by thinking back to a precise moment in time: 1994. This year marked a turning point for Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott and Dean & Dan Caten. The spark of Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott’s creative partnership was ignited when two very different personalities collided, fueled by the ethos of an unrestricted era that shaped a borderless, everything-is-possible intuition. A time when music, art and fashion all seemed to be liberating themselves from the conventional norm. Today, we announce that Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott have designed a capsule collection with Dean & Dan Caten and Dsquared2, entering into a new creative partnership, inspired by what in hindsight was a revolutionary year. 1994 epitomises the hedonistic sense of freedom of the Nineties using fashion as a tool to express oneself, embodying the art of being an individual. Mert & Marcus 1994 X Dsquared2 collection is the result of two photographers and two fashion designers that joined forces to create a limited edition of collectible pieces inspired by the key moments that shaped Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott & Dean and Dan Caten’ s lives in the ‘90s. The Mert & Marcus 1994 X Dsquared2 collection is composed of overalls, bombers, tank tops, hoodies, oversized t - shirts, asymmetric shift dresses and boxy tailoring in decisive volumes and bright graphic hues, drenched with a sense of underground-Berlin. The bold fabrications - laminated, paper and rubberized fabrics - are what together create the understated contemporary touch. Methodically positioned throughout the collection, with a do-it-yourself post-punk spirit, are images of Kate Moss and other iconic photos from Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott’s archive. As a result, art migrates from the pages of a monographic book or the walls of a gallery to items that are meant to be worn. Clothing, on its turn, gets as valuable as art. In short, a few cool clothes for a few cool kids.
