A DETACHER AUTUMN/WINTER 2015-16 READY-TO-WEAR NEW YORK
A DÉTACHER is a clothing label, a store, and a selection of objects and art. It is the project/business of Monika Kowalska. A DÉTACHER clothes are individual explorations into surface, form and function – a research into the formal posture of each garment. We further these explorations by creating a context in which they can reside. We fill the surrounding space with objects by designers, artisans and artists from around the world, creating a dialogue about form and function, but also about the power and importance of objects in our lives. We feel that the number of possible contexts is infinite. By offering a limited range of housewares, books and fetish objects, A DÉTACHER presents a selection of desirable objects and hopes that people will take the time to find their own. We look to our consumer to give our clothing their own spiritual posture – to use them in their own fashion.
