Monument Issue #3 | Oscar Suleyman

13.76 EUR

Monument is a fanzine dedicated to the 'Dutch Wave', a group of Dutch fashion designers who created international fame around the turn of the century. Each number is dedicated to one designer or design duo. This second issue focuses on the work of the duo Keupr/van Bentm (Michiel Keuper and Francisco van Benthum). Between 1997 and 2001, they challenged the fashion industry with their surprising and colorful statement collections.

In Monument, a project by stylist and fashion researcher Mary-Lou Berkulin and graphic designer Karen van der Kraats, images and texts from various archives are combined with new interviews and photography. Each issue has its own unique design and editorial approach, completely in keeping with the designer to whom the issue is dedicated.

This issue is dedicated to Oscar Suleyman, the designer duo with a taste for anything ‘chic’. The focus is especially on the women that were part of the label, both as inspirations and as formative influences. Next to a biography and images from the archive, the issue features contemporary photography by Woody Bos and Abel Minnée and written contributions by Aïcha Abbadi and Tatjana Almuli.
