About modem guides / History and covers
© Ettore Sottsass
For the automn winter 2002/2003 men’s & women’s collections in New York and Los Angeles we gave “carte blanche” to Ettore Sottsass, architect-designer, founder of the Memphis Group (1981), important landmark in contemporary design.
His work (furniture, vases, ceramics, objects) is present in the collections of the museums
of the main cities in the world. The image on the cover of MODEM “Caraibi” is the perfect reflection of Sottsass artistic work, which he has developped - camera in one hand, pen is the other - during his different journeys.
The intervention of Ettore Sottsass on our cover underlines the close links between different creative fields.This intervention also highlights the search for new esthetics in fashion. Discover prior to publication a selection of information on: www.modemonline.com
