Art & Fashion: Tim Hamilton’s dOCUMENTA (13) Debut with Seth Price on GQ.com

Follow fashion, have an interest in the art scene and headed to Germany by any chance in the next three months? If the answer is yes to all then you’re in luck as the dOCUMENTA (13) exhibition just opened. Like the World Cup of contemporary art, the 100 day Kassel-based showcase occurs only once every five years, having originated in 1955. This time around 150 artists from 55 countries will present works, but the one that’s made it on to our radars, naturally, features some slick white styles courtesy of designer Tim Hamilton.

As part of artist Seth Price’s multifaceted installation entitled Folklore U.S., Price worked with Hamilton on a collection of seven lightweight garments that owe their inspiration to military tailoring. The raw cotton canvas material used references standard issue army garments while envelope-related details, like linings printed with security patterns found on the inside of business envelopes, give Price the opportunity to make correlations between clothing and the office supply – that both items are cut flat, folded over, sealed and, until used, an empty package. To kick off the pairing, and the art fest, the duo held a fashion presentation of the line, above, and below, a peek at the Hamilton-designed goods.
