IDEA first struck up an ink relationship with Vetements earlier this year, when the cult book provocateurs put out the Parisian fashion collective’s debut self-titled book in January. Proving Vetements’ own cult stakes, the tome sold out in a day. Now you’ve got a chance to get your hands on another, with the launch of number two this Paris Fashion Week.
Vetements Summercamp features the collective’s SS17 collection, alongside collaborative work with Juicy Couture, Brioni, CdG Shirt, Champion and Manolo Blahnik that all featured in the range.
Photographed by Pierre-Ange Carlotti, it captures Vetements and co (their friends and collaborators) enjoying themselves at a chateau in Northern France one weekend this summer. Channeling the subversive energy that has quickly raised the collective to something of a fashion phenomenon, it captures the attitude and characters that make it so. Think model Paul Hameline, stylist Lotta Volkova and co-founder – and Balenciaga creative director – Demna Gvasalia.
For IDEA, this is the latest book in a long line of projects published in 2016. That’s eight, to be exact, from Skinny by Terry Richardson to Gosha Rubchinskiy’s The Day Of My Death, from Willy Vanderperre’s 10 Works for Raf Simons to Ari Marcopoulos’ Epiphany for Gucci. Epic.
Vetements Summercamp will be available from the 4th October exclusively at Dover Street Market London, New York, Ginza Tokyo and online at IDEA’s website.
