Following a collaboration with Virgil Abloh, the Zurich-based artist Pascal Möhlmann teams up with YVY for 3 hand-painted accessories around the theme of «COURAGE».
The customized YVY-classics – the «UNI Shoulderpiece», the «Moon Belt» and the «Asymmetric Handharness»; all handmade in Zurich of vegetable tanned leather – are decorated with Möhlmanns 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.
Pascal Möhlmann, born 1969 in Hilversum, Netherlands, is painting
since over thirty years. In 1994 he graduated «cum laude» in Fine Arts from the Utrecht School of the Arts (HKU). An admirer of Old Masters like Van Dyck, the artist describes his style as «Neue Schönheit with a punk-rock attitude». As a sought-after painter with a recognizable style he has painted numerous personalities such as Roger Federer, Caroline Vreeland or Bishops of the
Diocese St. Gallen.
