The stylistic duet has been collaborating since 2011 and has realized various projects in the fashion field. The duet “Wuethrichfuerst” view fashion like a playground where is possible to express ideas and concepts in different ways. Their work has been exhibited in various magazines, performances and shows. In their young creations they put in emotions and confused and foggy memories in a new fashion view, where the comfort becames a new form of abstract art, where faces, the realizations and feelings are reinterpreted in a new form of contemporary graphic. In their collection “MELTING THE MEMORY OF SITTING AT A TABLE IN OUR GRANDPARENTS‘ LIVINGROOM WHILE WATCHING TV ON A SMALL SCREEN”, the forms and materials used dissolve themselves, models merge with design objects as: chairs and tables. One of the leitmotiv of their creations is the fusion of clothes, accessories and locations. The things become wearable, in an intangible game where the materials surfaces reproduce the clear memory. For Wuethrichfuerst is important to reach exciting results by fantasy, to obtain a new fashion point of view. Stylistic boundaries don’t exist for the Maison and the figures of our memory are artistically reworked to take us into exciting and imaginative play.
