It’s a ideal element to a brand’s latest ready-to-wear collection, that Pilotto describes as “tropical-baroque” and includes quilted microfiber jackets and an asymmetrical dress festooned with chenille yarn. One day, he and de Vos were in a studio of a glassblower Jochen Holz and found themselves drawn to a array of potion cloak hooks Holz had made, that Holz has now remade for them as a array of sculptural glass-drop earrings and cuffs. “It was about personification with opposite materials and saying what we could do,” says Pilotto. “And only such a healthy discourse between disciplines.” Fittingly, a emporium will stay open by conform week, a London Design Festival and Frieze.
