Untitled19, don’t try whispering its name because in fact it has two, and its panoply is as ephemeral as it is out of time, suiting him as well as her. Untitled19 rummages through the unsold stocks of streetwear brands, other haute couture houses, as well as from the collective unconscious of the uniform, the suit or the costume. Untitled19 regenerates them, makes a travesty of them, weaves on them, studs them and cuts them closer to the body to suggest the unexpected in long cuts or slight distortions.
Untitled19 is a monument on the fluid body, taking form in a space on rue de Lancry in Paris.
Downtown dressing-room, the eponymous place presents the first collection of the duo in an installation for sale to better volatilize, expose without imposing. Because what remains is not so much the body but the spirit, its strength and its imagination.
