Collars of the Modern Gentleman
The American fashion designer Michael Cepress confronts a garment’s architecture and structure with unlikely ornamentation and pattern. When commissioned by Atopos cvc to create a garment from paper using an original, duplicate Yellow Pages phone book dress from the Atopos Paper Dress Collection, Cepress chose to draw inspiration from the attachable collars and created his ‘Collars for the Modern Gentleman’.
All of them belong to the Atopos Paper Dress Collection and are part of the RRRIPP! Paper Fashion exhibition. Two of them adorn the double cover of the RRRIPP! Paper Fashion catalogue, published by Atopos cvc.
