Hard as it is to believe, Zero + Maria Cornejo turns 15 this year. To celebrate, the Chilean-American designer asked fifteen of the brand’s nearest and dearest (clients, friends, artists) to choose a favorite piece of clothing from their own Zero wardrobes — including one in Zero’s first print — to be re-issued in new colors or new fabrics for spring. A hangtag will tell a personal anecdote from the artist who wore it.
Working in a wide range of disciplines, these elite fifteen include Cindy Sherman, Tilda Swinton, Wangechi Mutu, Kara Walker, Cat Power, Karen O, and Miranda July, each embodying the Zero spirit of originality and nonconformity. The capsule collection will launch at Barneys locations in the US and Zero + Maria Cornejo stores on Bleecker Street (New York) and Melrose Place (Los Angeles), as well as Zero’s newly designed e-store.
