Chaise Directeur Jean Prouvé

Written by . Filed under wander. Tagged , , , , , . No comments.

As if it’s in the air I recently stumbled upon the news that Dutch jeans brand G Star and Swiss furniture manufacturer Vitra joined hands in launching an authorized reedition of Prouvé’s Chaise Directeur.

It provides a stage for young autonomous, progressive fashion designers who are looking for new, often cross-disciplinary ways to present their collections. Who cares? came up with some ideas for a fashionshow organised by them to support the ‘off schedule’ character of the event.
