Opus II – Interferences
After an initial chapter establishing the conceptual and “anti-stylistic” foundation of the brand, Ludovic Alban is expanding this permanent dialogue between classic and modern. Without opposing them, he is working
on establishing a relevant synthesis by transgressing certain rules in cutting and in the search for materials through a merging of sportswear and outerwear, craftsmanship and ready-to-wear.
The more focused Aisthaet’s concept becomes, the more the expression “wearing your leathers” makes sense. Your leather, your own leather, a sustainable, desirable and customizable incarnation, because it is now available in Made To Order, thanks to highly responsive Parisian workshops.
Another dual achievement is the fact that Ludovic, being deeply concerned with the environment
and sustainable development, was adamant about working with a particularly virtuous Tuscan tannery. The result brings another advantage, namely that both the biker and the trench coat made in this Gommeux calf leather are now much more a ordable.
These factors have all meshed and led Ludovic to producing these images on static models. Every Aisthaet garment becomes a leather sculpture on natural or lacquered wood. Photographed at the Studio Vosges, which is haunted by the work of Mathias Kiss, the staging is unsettled by a subtle feminine presence, playing with re ections in wrinkled mirror shards as it does in the eyes of the most enlightened minds.
