»Quiet Days in Clichy«, the title of American writer Henry Millers novel from 1956 about artist’s bohemian life in place de la Clichy Paris.
»For the collection we imagined an American writer/student going to Paris for the first time... We took the best part of America – the freshness, the energy, the bright smile and the lust for adventure! The Americano mixed with old world decadence – Paris – place de la Clichy with its extreme mix of people and cultures. X rated clubs, Europe cheapest shops, loud women which are not always female, food from every hidden corner of the world and the fabric stores. An area where a sweet American easily can loose his focus! In the collection there are a mix of both worlds + glimpses of most worlds. A piece of stars and stripes remixed by Venezuelan art director Char Alfonzo in New York Meshweaters with an African stripe designed in Denmark. To complete the look, paper glasses from Hong Kong designer Ron Wan for Rene Gurskov– now based in Toronto. Items are skirt like pants; linen jackets tied together, asymmetric tees, bowling shirts, boxershorts and the biggest trackpants. Enough pieces to dress up and be anything but quiet!« Rene Gurskov
