Sisters Priscilla and Deborah Royer presented a Pièce d’Anarchive collection that mixed street-style casual with cool chic. Drawing inspiration from French contemporary artist Jean-Pierre Raynaud and the clean, graphic aesthetic of the house he constructed and demolished as an art project in 1993, the duo built a strong lineup based on black and white.
Tone-on-tone checks dominated the knitwear, while a more fluid structure was evident in light summer sweaters. The sisters played with see-through nylon to convey a delicate elegance, while the collection’s boyish side came through in a series of ample shirts tailored from mesh jersey.
The clothes were displayed against the backdrop of an installation Raynaud set up exclusively for the presentation — eight neat rows of eight buckets filled with his house’s rubble — and a giant screen projected the looks via a custom-made algorithm of moving pictures.
