Next thursday the 20th of June, Mattia Van Severen and Inge Rylant presented their collaborative work ‘Play Time’ in Antwerp. Mattia is fashion designer and graduate at the Antwerp fashion Academy and Inge works as illsutrator and graphic designer.
Mattia’s graduation project is based on ‘Flocking‘, an old somewhat ‘wrong’ technique which uses a felt-like fabric layer on top of clothing. Mattia experiments with this technique in a very graphical way, which led towards the collaboration with Inge. Both often use abstract color schemes or shapes which made the collaboration into a coherent story.
Based on the work of Mattia, Inge designed a book to coincide with the collection. A silkscreened handcrafted book with a similar visual and analogue approach Mattia had used in his collection.
From 18:00 till 22:00 the opening will take place at Oona, Rijnkaai 22 in Antwerp
