HUSAM EL ODEH FOR ACNE
LIMITED EDITION TEE – VOGUE FASHION’S NIGHT OUT SEPTEMBER 8th 2010
“I seem to have an obsession with functional objects. In a way absurdly, particularly when their function is removed. These lost objects seem to gain their own character. What is a watch that does not even show you the actual time? Uselessness, a forgotten virtue, fascinates me in the context of useless pretty things that all jewellery is in a way. the watch vest somehow became the resolution of broken blank and fake watches that have been popping up everywhere in my work over a number of seasons. It was based on a runner vest pattern and I guess part of me was almost curious if I could make an accumulation of random pieces behave like a garment: a piece of couture made by a jeweller”
Husam El Odeh
For Vogue Fashion’s Night Out ACNE and HUSAM EL ODEH have collaborated to create a limited edition tee. Taking inspiration from HUSAM’s Watch Vest and ACNE’s best selling Copy Tee, contrasting Couture with an ACNE wardrobe staple we have produced a garment that juxtaposes creative elements to produce a piece that is heavy and feminine, and yet light and masculine.
