The austere, minimalist designs by Van Slobbe (SO by Alexander van Slobbe, orson+bodil) are internationally regarded as the epitome of Dutch Modernism. Alongside Viktor & Rolf, Van Slobbe is seen as the most versatile, successful and talented Dutch fashion designer of the day. His personal passion is the product itself, informed by an ongoing quest for new creations, innovative materials and the use of different means of production, including traditional methods. A running theme throughout Van Slobbe’s career has been to see fashion as a platform on which various forms of collaboration with architects, artists and writers can take place. more
Alexander van Slobbe, and... and... and... is more than a classic representation of an oeuvre. For Van Slobbe, a greater and hence more meaningful context has always been of the highest importance. In the publication this context is supplied by essays and several new picture reportages which —presented in the unusual book design by Mevis & Van Deursen— together create an independent view of Van Slobbe’s work.

With texts by Guus Beumer, Daniël Bouw, John de Greef, Christophe Mollet, Florence Müller, Domeniek Ruyters, Louise Schouwenberg, Takeji Hirakawa en José Teunissen. more
