The Zurich-based artist Pascal Möhlmann teamed up with YVY’s founder and creative director Yvonne Reichmuth to create hand-painted accessories around YVY’s last book theme «FEELINGS».
«COURAGE» is the theme of the three art pieces co-created by Pascal and Yvonne and one of the chapters in the recently released book where the two artists discuss provocation and beauty in their work.
The customized YVY classics – the «UNI Shoulder Piece», the «Moon Belt» and the «Asymmetric Handharness»; all handmade from vegetable tanned leather – became pieces of art through Möhlmann's paintings. They depict fragments of body parts such as a screaming mouth, a wildly looking eye or a clawing hand as well as objects like a broken champagne bottle and some shards.
The collaboration of YVY with Pascal, one of Switzerland's best-known contemporary painters, is eye-catching, and just as YVY's work blurs the boundaries of accessory and garment, these sculptures cross the often-discussed boundaries of fashion and art.
The three one-of-a-kind pieces have just been launched at YVY's "Gallery Takeover" event in December 2021.
