OAMC's Musèe du Louvre Collaboration Draws From Life and Death

Luke Meier‘s OAMC is known for making peace through the means of collaboration, finding common ground between itself and another entity to create collections that will become highly sought after in the years to come. Take a look at its recent releases with fragment design, PROVOKE, or Gimme 5, each standing as drops that have helped OAMC pave the way for more collaborations down the line — like its latest with Musèe du Louvre.

Titled “Vie et Mort,” or “Life and Death,” the collaboration takes OAMC’s long-line coat, signature quilted liner jacket, and staples like shirts, sweaters and T-shirts, and applies a variety of Louvre-displayed artworks on their bodies. For example, Les ombres de Francesca da Rimini et de Paolo Malatesta apparaissent à Dante et à Virgile (1855) by Ary Scheffer has been printed on the water-repellent recycled polyester poplin liner and the brushed Italian cotton sweater, while Allégorie de la Victoire (1635) by Louis Le Nain is printed on a silk patch and has been added to the rear of the overshirt and tee.

Paul Delaroche’s 1865 piece, Le Jeune Martyr, joins the rear of the elongated coat and a final shirt, subsequently rounding out the collection. Describing the capsule, OAMC says the paintings “convey the concept of life and death, a concept that resonates strongly with the times we live in.”
