Made in Town is home to the first collection of Moy, a line of t-shirts drawing on the skills of Chanteclair. Designed by Yasco Otomo – a Japanese fashion designer now living in Paris for more than a decade – the collection revisits the French tradition of knitwear.
The Autumn/Winter 2014-2015 collection consists of eight models with loose cuts, available in a variety of cotton jerseys and colors, ranging from navy blue to verdigris. The details that characterize this first collection are the use of Japanese jersey cotton – finely knit with a touch of lurex and the edges of the neck and interior details cut from a selection of fabrics from masculine striped shirts to those printed by the English house, Liberty.
During the exhibition, the public is invited to discover this Japanese view of the French textile heritage including: the classic navy Breton and the knitting industry of Champagne-Ardenne, with the exclusive possibility to order selected models.
Carlo Marini is heir to a dynasty of master shoemakers whose fame and prestige date back to the last century when Giuseppe Marini opened his boutique in via Francesco Crispi, where he soon won over an enviable clientele of world fame.
Made in Town presents a reflection on the ambiguity between original artwork and serial manufacture or reproduction.
In order to promote the know-how and the characteristics of La Rochère glass factory, located in Passavant-la-Rochère in the French department of Haute-Saône, Made in Town conducted a series of four short videos shot in the heart of the company's workshops.
