Sonic Youth star Kim Gordon has been a great inspiration for the designers of the fashion brand & Other Stories. When they have a studio in Los Angeles opened, they saw their opportunity to the artist in the sea to go.
Kim Gordon grew up in Los Angeles and has a special relationship with the city. ‘As a teenager I felt the pressure to always be happy because the sun shone. Now, I enjoy more of me just let lost’, she talks about her home. & Other Stories invited the musician and artist in the new design studio in the City of Angels for a collab. The city and her daughter Coco Gordon Moore: Gordon for its collection of organic cotton T-shirts, hoodies, silk scarves and copper necklaces.
The collection started on the one hand, from abstract paintings by Kim Gordon, and on the other hand, the word ‘her’. From there, filled Gordon her collection with garments with the words ‘they’, ‘the other’, ‘the shadow’, ‘the end’ and ‘morning mirror’.
‘Dealing with the structured forms of T-shirts and hoodies in this collection was almost like working with blank canvases. I decided to use words, because I love the idea of a word and the drama with which it is surrounded. A word can have a certain atmosphere calls, and there is a certain degree of mystery around. The silk screen gives the pieces a more traditional feeling, as if they were one-of-a-kind. Especially the abstract prints look almost tie-dyed, but kunstzinniger. I’m crazy about contrasts and love it when something unexpected glam look. I think that women today, their environment to their hand by what they wear, ” says Kim Gordon.
Daughter Coco is also the face of the collection.
The launch of the collection is accompanied by two short films Ode to LA, and Kim & Coco.
The collection of Kim Gordon for & Other Stories will be available as of August 31, in the Antwerp branch and online.
