I paid a visit to Tim Hamilton’s studio, where his collaboration line with conceptual artist Seth Price was on display. These were the pieces he recently showed at dOCUMENTA (13), an art fair that happens every five years in Kassel, Germany. The designer’s atelier was awash in white, and what a pleasure it was to finger the pieces and try them on myself.
The collaborative duo were inspired by the societal themes of finance and communication, as evidenced in the stark white garments lined in fabrics that resembled envelope liners, printed with spoofs of famous financial logos. Aviation was also a significant inspiration for the two. Seth Price makes use of the bomber jacket in his famous contorted, vacuum-sealed, metallic spray-painted wall sculptures, and Tim Hamilton does an update of the iconic bomber nearly every season.
