CDG Homme Plus Fall/Winter 2021 collection follows below.
“I came across the sculptures of the New Jersey based artist Willie Cole which included these powerful masks made up from black high heeled shoes.
I am constantly looking for strong images and I suddenly had the idea to ask Willie if he would consider to make headpieces instead of face masks using black high heeled shoes.
Even though he had never made any headpieces, he readily rose to the challenge and we worked together to create these headpieces that you see in the presentation. I also worked with photos on fabric of the original masks in the collection itself.”
