Blurred lines of Artwork and Fashion (Untitled---Artworks)
Our latest obsession is Untitled---Artworks by Erasmo A. Ciufo.
A topic we know better than most is the overlap between the art and fashion world. Heavily inspired by some of High Fashion's earliest profile collabs (like Sterling Ruby x Prada) to more recent examples (reference Virgil x Futura) Dior's recent show with Daniel Arsham and Kaws, or the recent rumors that have spurred indicating that Kenny Scharf will working with Prada on their 2021 release. It's starting to feel like an every day occurence. Occipark comes from a background of working with artists to create physical garments so when an artist/designer comes forward with Erasmo that approaches the garment design and production process from such an authentic stance, it immediately caught my attention.
Erasmo is a seasoned Veteran in the design space having worked with iconic brands like Adidas, Off White, Heron Preston, among others. Releasing his own brand under Untitled---Artworks was a natural progression for someone so deeply rooted in fashion and design.
His inaugural release "2020-1" was a series of 99 unique garments, manufactured and finished by hand, ranging from sizes S to XXL. Each garment goes through a process of hand dying, screen printing, unique embroidery along with added elements.
