Meet this week’s Tumbrl find: Ubicouture
These days, fashion and art go hand in hand, with both disciplines informing each other in limitless ways. Just look at collaborations likes Takashi Murakami and Louis Vuitton or Raf Simons and Ruby Sterling.
Christos Mouchas, the 19 year-old creator of Ubicouture’s transports models straight from the runway into timeless works of art. He has introduced Christian Dior to Frank Stella, Maison Margiela to Mike Kelley, and Celine to Caillebotte.
The idea came to Mouchas after watching Raf Simon’s final Jil Sander show, which was decorated with beautiful boxed bouquets “A few days earlier, I had seen a painting by Gustav Klimt and I though about how these two images could crash. I imagined the models from the show walking on that Klimt path and I thought: ‘Why not make it real?’”
