Milan based Luisa Cevese is the ultimate recycler. She recovers industrial textile castoffs and uses them to make incredibly beautiful, totally practical and occasionally ethereal objects you can use. She embeds them in polyurethane, much like you might laminate your driver’s license. Unlike your driver’s license, however, her work does not feature a small unappealing photograph of you, and is something you’d be proud to show off. Like at the beach. Like if you’re using it to carry your copy of The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest and an old tube of Coppertone.
moss bureau blog is the covert gateway to the inner world of Moss Bureau. Behind the scenes, through the looking glass, up the down staircase, over the rainbow, all around the town. Our town. Our Town. We cover the bureau-front, from top to topless, stem to stern, sea to shining see. We open drawers and draw our own conclusions. The designers, the artists, the interns, friends and foes, clients and miscreants, consultants and co-defendants, the Fairs and the unfair, the good fight and the bad lieutenant, lies, truths, massive cover-ups, mitigating circumstances, plausible deniabilities. The undercooked and the overlooked. Wet-work, dry wall, the dog, the pony, the smoke and the mirrors. We look down the barrel, pull the trigger, and face the music. Fearless, feckless, and born to run. Sometimes a cigar really is just a cigar. Think different. It’s later than you think.
