Former Creative Director of Yves Saint Laurent, Stefano Pilati, has launched his new Berlin-based label, Random Identities.
The collection, which Pilati refers to as "protective wear", borrows from some of the style codes of Berlin's club kids - shiny black bombers, and military-inspired silhouettes – while focusing on a mixture of soft and secure fabrics such as nylon and twill. Speaking to SSENSE about the conception of the new label, Pilati explains:
"Random stands for the randomness of existence, and Identities stands as a response to that randomness. The two terms define the space where people can identify themselves not with trends, but with personality, function, quality, and design. But above all, a confidence in integrating new codes indicative of the gender shift we are witnessing."
To celebrate the launch of the collection, Pilati worked on a special installation at Dover Street Market New York, where you can buy items from the debut collection exclusively in-store. Check out the installation and garments on display on the mezzanine below.
