About the collection
Yosigo is a master of photography. His shots present unique palettes, meticulous composition, and are very unique in their ability to capture architecture and environments in a way that poetically stops time.
Even so, describing Yosigo’s work solely through it’s near-perfect technical execution does not reflect the full spectrum of his genius. And it isn’t the only element that inspired the LIGNES collection. Indeed, the singular greatness of his work also lies in the steep contrast between the subjects and unique beauty of his photographs and the environment in which they are set. Benidorm, La Grande Motte for exemple all share this fascinating contrast between superb architecture and a certain modern tackiness of surroundings. These places startle with extraordinary beauty within seemingly ordinary settings, on the thin line between the minimal and the maximal, the sophisticated and the kitsch. It is this antithesis between a popular seaside resort and exceptional architecture that is transcribed here by the clothing, by this collection which plays with its contradictions.
Architecture and shapes in the service of beauty, technique and rigor in the service of art; the functional fused with the superfluous. And designers and architects, radically different, but which occasionally start from the same starting point, a drawing; lines.
