PARIS, Jan 20, 2011 / FW/ — Renegades, outsiders, pioneers — these are the designers at RA. Their narratives, passions and obsessions will unfold during the event. Allow yourself to be convinced. Get into their story. Enjoy the unexpected.
Kevin Kramp adds a vibrant and pulsating energy to high-quality yarns.
A graduate of Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island in the United States, he also studied at Central Saint Martins in London where he earned a BA Honours in Fashion Design with knitwear.
His pieces are sculptural, explosive and beautiful. Thier 3D quality instantly grabs your eye and saturates your senses, mixing patterns, textures and colours with apparent ease.
For Fall 2011/Winter 2012, Kevin pursues his exploration of volume. Exaggerated shapes lend a playful edge to the silhouette. Despite their intricacy, countless details and craft, his pieces are comfortable and desirable.
Kevin’s work has been selected by Antwerp’s mode museum for their upcoming knitwear show, called
CEDRID JACQUEMYN / YVES DE BRABANDER
Working together as a team, Belgian designer Cédric Jacquemyn and photographer Yves de Brabander present selected works based around Cédric’s collection, named ‘The Last Glacier’.
Shot in Iceland during the explosion of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano last may, Yves’ images have an eerie and lunar quality, with crater smokes and fumes echoing the muted tones of Cédric’s clothes.
A poetic tale of survival, longing and isolation, these images of men abandoned in nature convey strong emotions and a peaceful feeling. A video installation will complement them, reflecting the intense creative connection between the two men.
“We aim at constant progress in trying to get the atmosphere right”. It is a truly collaborative effort, directing the same energy towards the clothes and images we want to make.”
