Italian luxury fashion label Sportmax, is pleased to announce the second chapter of Carte Blanche, a capsule collection in which the artist is at the heart of the decision making process. Carte Blanche is an expression of French origin, which literally means “blank paper”. The Sportmax Carte Blanche program gives the selected artist a blank canvas to create a sketch that will be produced on limited edition ready to wear items.
Chapter 1, presented in 2009, engaged artist Christophe Brunnquell (art director for Purple magazine and Le Figaro) to create a collection of limited-edition pieces. Chapter 2, welcomes Sonic Youth co-founder and visual artist Kim Gordon who has created a collection of numbered tunics, shirts and dresses.
The collection is launching on September 10, Fashion’s Night Out, during an exclusive event in the New York Sportmax Boutique. Kim Gordon will be on hand from 6-10pm while her husband Thurston Moore, also of Sonic Youth, will be deejaying.
The collection will be sold through all the Sportmax Boutiques and in select Max Mara Boutiques worldwide.
