Dear Diane and Dear Shaded Viewers,
For the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Berlin, MoMu the Fashion Museum in Antwerp and Mercedes-Benz invited Belgian art director Frederik Heyman and 4 fashion designers with exceptional signatures and outspoke styles to create 4 installations around a Young Classics car.
From these cars from the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s, 4 cars were selected that today have an undisputed cut status: W115, S123, R107 and C126. In the installations, the designers were asked to reflect on how the Young Classics can still inspire us today and to interpret the widely varying connotations associated with these cars into a contemporary context.
For each Young Classics, Frederik Heyman created a unique decor, fashion designers Bernhard Willhelm, Peter Pilotto, Henrik Vibskov and Mikio Sakabe have added their own visions to the installations with each 3 new looks especially created for the installations.
Recollection Quartett is on view during the Berlin fashion week from January 19th until 23rd at the B
