First of all i must say that there is nothing wrong with going to the dark side with such a cool brand like Anti Denim.
In this edition i worked up and close with Norwegian based photographer Fred Jonny, make up artist Linda Wickman, hair stylist Andres Kløvstad and the owner of Anti Denim Kjetil Wold. The collection is based on A sound + fabric collaboration between Stephen O´Malley and Anti Denim. Working together for almost a year the artist Stephen O´Malley and Anti Denim [known for producing ltd edition black denims inspired by the northern darkness] join forces.
Stephen O´Malley will perform a solo guitar set on the 14th of February at the ANTI space in Oslo 2013. The performance is the launch of a project where Anti Denim and Stephen O´Malley have explored the borders of sound, art and textiles.
The project has resulted in in a unique limited edition collection of the boot cut jeans and 2 exclusive shirt designs titled “RESONANCE” … and a cymatic sound robot which translates live sounds to unique printed graphics. imitedCheck out this really cool campaign that
Quote: “The philosophy of the ANTI brand, it’s studio and it’s creative directors demanded me toward this project. We have had a long connection and conversation, starting with their usage of SUNN O)))’s track “O)))BOW1” in the great video for their premier denims, and continuing through custom poster design for SUNN O)))s 2009 performance at John Dee during the “Monoliths & Dimensions” touring. ANTI’s limited editions, strong understanding of aesthetics, devoted connection to music and creativity made it a great collaboration. “Resonance” bootcut jeans are my design in collaboration with Anti Denim, we got the shape, cut, the sigil motives and details just as we wanted them. I’m looking forward to the performance and sound experiment at the launch on the 14th of February” says Stephen O´Malley.
As for me this was something so cool, dark and out of the ordinary. Tthe images turned out fantastic and the jeans where very and good quality.
