ART AND COMMERCE: Fashion and art are getting closer together than ever. Each x Other, the French contemporary label created by designer Ilan Delouis and artistic director Jenny Mannerheim, has given over its pre-fall collection to a collaboration with artist Robert Montgomery.
Linked with the brand since it launched in 2012, Montgomery previously contributed text-based artworks for capsule ranges. Now there’s a full wardrobe for men and women with his poetic slogans adorning sweatshirts, jeans, leather dungarees or the lining of a biker jacket or fur coats.

The collaboration extends to limited-edition art works to be carried at select wholesale accounts, starting with Colette in Paris in June, which plans to host a full Montgomery exhibition. Also this week, Each x Other unveiled its new atelier and showroom space in the trendy Upper Marais district of Paris.
